21-117: Integration and Differential Equations


The course will have two exams. The First Exam will be given in class on Friday, February 11. The Second Exam will be given in class on Friday March 3. There will be an opportunity for students to take a retest to improve their score on the First Exam.

Tests will be closed book and no calculators. A student may reschedule an exam in case of documented illness or family emergency or documented University sponsored trips.


There will be two homework assignments per week, to be turned in at the beginning of each recitation. While this set of problems will be collected and graded, it should be taken as a minimal selection. You should test your knowledge by doing other problems in the appropriate section.

Late homeworks will be accepted up to seven days after the due date, with or without excuse. There will be no penalty for the first late assignment. The second may be turned in for half credit, the third for one quarter credit, and so forth. There will be absolutely no exceptions to these rules.

Grading policy

The final grade for the course will be determined by your performance on the homework and on the two exams, according to the following algorithm:
              Homework        20%
              First Exam      40%
              Second Exam     40%

Letter Grades

Letter grades will be assigned according to the following guidelines:
R: < 49, D: 50-64, C: 65-74, B: 75-84, A: > 85
Adjustments to this scheme may be made if there is some operator-error in making up the tests.


Any cheating on the mid-term or final exam will, at minimum, result in failure on that test, at maxmum, in failure for the course. The incident will be reported to the Dean of Students per University policy. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, receiving aid from another student, giving aid to another student, or use of unauthorized materials.
