Course Notes

The Mathematics and Statistics department, in accordance with the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, continues to promote the integrity and security of its courses. To further secure its courses, the department will require one proctored midterm and a proctored final exam in this course. Students who enroll in this online course will have to take the midterm and the final exam within the scheduled exam time frame.  Off-campus proctoring will require either a webcam or travel to an accredited testing center.  All proctoring arrangements must be in place and approved by the instructor and math department no later than the last day of add/drop for the course.

To receive a passing grade in the course, the average of all midterm and final exam scores must be at least a 50%.
