Note that this class meets only twenty times during the entire
semester and that the final examination is given during the last meeting,
so that, effectively, there are only nineteen working class sessions
during the entire summer semester. Thus, each single session is the
equivalent of nearly a full regular semester week, making it extremely
important that students attend each and every class meeting.

Listserv Mailing List
The class has a listserv mailing list set up. The name of the list is
WMA116-L and it is hosted on listserv.uconn.edu. Every member of
the class will be automatically signed up for the list upon filling out the
is expected to participate in the discussions.
There are a number of sets of available. The following sets of slides specific for this class are also available. Each set is available in a normal size text format as well as the slides used in class.

Problem Sets, Quizzes and Examinations
There will be quizzes most Fridays, along with one, two or three hour long exams during
the course of the semester. The exams will be announced at least two
classes beforehand, and will probably be announced even before that on the
class mailing list. There will also be a number of graded problem sets during the course of the semester. Each problem set will be worth 50 points. Specific policies regarding the completion of problem sets are available elsewhere on this web site.
It is important to note that each set will have a due date. It is permissible to submit completed sets prior to the due date; no sets will be accepted after the due date.
Each quiz will be worth 10 points. Most problem sets will graded on the basis of 100 points but will be worth 50 points. In other words, when calculating averages, half the grade will be added in. The regular exam will be worth 100 points. The final examination will be worth 150 points.
There may be some group projects given during the course of the semester, starting with the on the first day of classes.
