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 a proctored final exam for all of its online courses. Students who enroll in online courses will have to take a proctored final exam within the scheduled exam time frame. Off-campus proctoring will require either a webcam and strong internet connection 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 final exam score must be at least a 50%.
