Homework is assigned weekly, and will be posted one week before the due date. Homework is due in class. Homework solutions will be posted after the due date.
Homework assignments can be worked out individually or in groups. The maximum number of students in a group is three. A group submits only one solution with the names of all members of the group on the front page. To get credit, your name has to be on the font page when the homework is submitted. Groups can vary from one assignment to another.
Copying homework solutions directly from any sources is strictly prohibited. A violating individual (or group) will receive zero points for the whole assignment in question. The instructor reserves further rights to reflect homework cheating on the final grades.
There will be two midterm exams and one final exam. Note that the schedules for midterms are tentative and subject to change, and exact dates will be announced two weeks before the exams.
Midterm 1: October 11, Thursday, 4:10 - 5:00 pm, 1345 Engineering Building
Midterm 2: November 8, Monday, 4 - 4:50 pm, 1345 Engineering Building
Final exam: December 11, Tuesday, 5:45 - 7:45 pm, 1345 Engineering Building. Note that failing to attend the final exam automatically fails the class.
The final grade is based on homework (20%), midterm 1 (25%), midterm 2 (25%), and final exam (30%).
