Requirements for students registered for 4 credits: All 6 problems must be completed in the usual weekly homeworks. The grades for these will be rescaled to be out of 15 points. Tests and the final exam will be the same as the 3-credit section. There will also be three or four additional homeworks (roughly 20 points each) that will require outside reading. Each student will be required to type at least one solution from each additional homework to distribute to the other students. The additional homeworks will increase the point total of the course.
