for course information, updates and changes to policy, syllabus, homework
solution sets, exam solutions, and other supplementary material. The URL will be

http://www.math.arizona.edu/~bjb/math105/fall06

You should make a point of visiting the web page frequently.

**Homework: **I will assign and collect homework, but I
am sorry to say I will not be able to give detailed attention to every
solution. I will mostly be checking that
you made a serious attempt to do the problems as best you can. I will post solutions to assigned problems on
the course web page. There will be 10
assignments each worth 10 points.

**Exams:** There will be four in-class exams, all on Wednesdays:
13 September, 11 October, 8 November, and 29 November. Each in-class exam will be worth 100
points. The Final exam, worth 200 points, will be on Monday

**Project:** There
will be a project worth 50 points in the Statistics section.

**Course grade: **All
points from homework, quizzes, and exams will be added together, and the result
divided by the total possible. Final
percentages above 90, 80, 70, or 60 guarantee letter grades of A, B, C, or D
respectively. I may revise these cutoffs
downward if the exams end up being unduly lengthy or difficult.
