  • Math 110: Discovering in Mathematics
    presents some sample problems discusses mathematical techniques that can be used to solve them and provides the reader with a set of similar problems to work on We will use material from this book throughout the term starting with Chapter 1 in the second week of the course In general I will ask you to read the expository material in a chapter and I might lecture on it and work through some of the problems in class Then I will assign some problems from the chapter for group work in class or for homework Note that I will also bring readings and problems from other sources into the course Assignments There will be a variety of graded assignments in this course including both individual and group work These assignments will count for 36 of your final grade for the course Each week part of at least one class will be devoted to group work usually some type of problem solving and often this work will continue outside of class The work will be collected and graded in some form Sometimes I will ask for a single report from the group as a whole in that case everyone in the group will get the same grade Sometimes I will ask each person in the group to write up one or more problems which will be graded individually There will be some short writing assignments such as reports on web research or reactions to readings These will generally be no more than a page in length If I get the idea that people are not doing the readings before we discuss them in class I might start collecting written reports on the reading before the discussions There will also be some individual problem solving assignments Final Project In addition to the regular weekly assignments you will complete one larger project which will be due towards the end of the semester This will not be a huge project and it will count for only 10 of your final grade for the course A paper of some sort probably in the range of 5 to 7 pages is one possible type of project and probably the most common However other types of project will be possible For example you might create some artwork using techniques or ideas that we cover in the course Or you might choose several of the harder problems in Problem Solving Through Recreational Mathematics and write up solutions for them More information for the final project will be available by the middle of the term along with some specific topic suggestions Tests There will be two in class tests which will be given on Friday February 23 and on Friday April 4 There will also be a third test which will be given as a final exam in the scheduled final exam period Saturday May 10 at 1 30 PM The final exam will not be longer than the other tests and all three tests will have the same weight

    whole For most assignments you are encouraged to work on the assignment with other people in the course However the work that you turn in should be your own and you should never simply copy someone else s work Some assignments might ask you to work on your own and you should be careful to follow such instructions For some essays it will be useful to consult on line or print sources you should be careful to give proper credit to any sources that you use just as you would for any writing project If you have questions about academic integrity requirements for any assignment please ask Mathematics Colloquia The Department of Mathematics and Computer Science sponsors several colloquium talks every semester They are usually scheduled at 4 15 or 4 45 PM I expect several of this semester s talks to be about mathematics It would be a good experience for you to attend these talks To encourage you to attend at least one of them you can get 1 5 points of extra credit on your final grade for the course for attending one of the mathematics talks Talks will be announced in class and by email If you attend a talk be sure to let me know that you are there Tests and Final Exam There will be three in class tests in addition to a final exam The tests will be given on Friday February 14 Wednesday March 12 and Monday April 14 The final exam will take place during the officially scheduled exam time for the course which is Sunday May 11 at 1 30 PM The final exam will not be much longer than the in class tests and will count for the same number of points It will concentrate on material from the last part of the course but will in addition have one or two general essay questions about the course as a whole A part of each test will be solving problems that test your knowledge of facts and techniques the sort of thing that you would likely think of as typical math problems However a larger part of the test will be essay questions about the terms and concepts that have been discussed in class Grading Your numerical grade for the course will be determined as follows First test 15 points Second test 15 points Third test 15 points Final exam 15 points Graded assignments 20 points Low stakes assignments 20 points For the low stakes assignment I will scale your grade so that the average grade for the class on those assignments is 85 The numerical average might then be adjusted up somewhat because of attendance at a math colloquium or a very high level of class participation It might be adjusted down if you have missed an excessive number of classes Letter grades are assigned as follows 90 100 A 80 89 B 60 79 C 55 69 D 0 54 F Grades near a cutoff get a

    will be handed out during the lab Some of the problems will be for practice Others will be handed in as part of a lab report Your group can turn in a single lab report for which you will all receive the same grade I suggest that you divide the work of writing up the lab report among all the members of the group If you really prefer not to share the grade with the rest of your group you can write up and turn in a lab report on your own to receive a separate grade from your group However you are still required to work with a group in lab In general the problems that I ask you to turn in as part of a lab report will not be simple calculations They will often require some experimentation and deep thinking They might not have a single correct solution The lab report should not simply state a solution It should discuss the problem how you approached it and how you tried to solve it You can receive substantial credit even if you don t solve the problem at all Your discussion should be written up as an essay in clear sentences and paragraphs Treat each problem as a small writing assignment Except in extraordinary circumstances you must be present at lab to get any credit Lab reports will ordinarily be collected on Monday of the week after the lab Tests and Quizzes There will be a short quiz at the beginning of class approximately once per week usually on Friday There will be no quiz in the first week of class or in weeks when there is a test The first quiz will be on Friday September 10 Quiz questions will often be taken directly from homework or from labs Your lowest quiz grade will be dropped and the remaining quiz grades will be averaged to give one overall grade for quizzes There will be three in class tests which will be given on the following Fridays September 24 October 22 and November 19 The final exam for the course will take place at the time scheduled by the Registrar s office Thursday December 16 8 30 11 30 AM The final exam will cover material from the entire term with some emphasis on material that is covered after the third in class test Basic scientific non graphing calculators will be provided for use on the tests and final exams They will also be provided for quizzes in cases where they might be useful You are not permitted to use your own calculator Note that except in extraordinary circumstances there will be no make up quizzes or exams A missed quiz or exam will be graded as zero Grading At the end of the semester you will have grades for the following First Test Second Test Third Test Homework Labs Quizzes Final Exam I will include your final exam grade twice giving a total of eight grades The
