Help with typing math: TeX, etc.

You are encouraged to type your assignments. You can access LaTeX in the computer labs; more information and help can be found on this departmental page. Note: for Macs, I recommend TeXShop.
You might also consider using the what-you-see-is-what-you-get text editor TeXmacs; it makes it unnecessary for you to learn the LaTeX typesetting language while producing output of comparable quality. The program is freely downloadable, available for various platforms, able to import and export LaTeX files, and offers a plugin for Macaulay 2.

Policies on grading and academic integrity

Grading Homework and participation is worth 15% of the grade; in-class quizzes 10%; on-line participation and class participation/discussion 5%; mid-term exam 35%; final exam 35%.
Tentative grading distribution: A: 90-100; B: 80-89; C: 70-79; D: 60-69; E: 0-59.
Collaboration You are encouraged to work in groups and are allowed to discuss homework problems with another student in the course, the TA, an IIT ARC tutor, or the instructor. However, the solutions should be written by you alone. Otherwise, it can be consdered plagiarism and you may receive no credit. Copying another student's solution for homework problem is considered plagiarism. In addition, after you have discussed any problems with others, you must not consult any notes from these discussions while you write up your solution.
Also, you may not consult 3rd party resources, such as the internet, to look for solutions.
Academic integrity The Code of Conduct and applicable penalties in the IIT Student Handbook apply.

Any incident of plagiarism/ cheating (from a person or from any online resource) will be strictly dealt with.

Missed work Assignments and exams cannot be made up except as approved by the instructor (e.g., due to official IIT activity or documented emergency). An exam missed for an excused reason must be made up promptly upon the student’s return, the time frame being at the discretion of the instructor.
Disability assistance Reasonable accommodations will be made for students with documented disabilities. In order to receive accommodations, students must obtain a letter of accommodation from the Center for Disability Resources and make an appointment to speak with me [the instructor] as soon as possible. The Center for Disability Resources (CDR) is located in Life Sciences Room 218, telephone 312-567-5744 or
