Exams and Grading: Quizzes First Exam Second Exam Comprehensive Final 10% 25% 25% 40% Failing any two of the above components will earn you an F for the course regardless of your overall average. Homework and Class Participation: During lectures you will be given lists of homework problems. Every student is expected to solve the homework problems before the next lecture and to bring questions to class. Homework will not be collected. It is important that you complete the homework assigned in a timely fashion in order to fully participate in class discussions. At the beginning of each lecture, I will answer questions about the homework problems. POLICIES: Attendance to every class is mandatory. Academic dishonesty (e.g. cheating and plagiarism) will mean an F for the term. There will be no tolerance or second chances. Students are allowed to bring to every exam and quiz a one-page, 8x11, handwritten sheet of notes containing anything they like. Any part of the syllabus may be changed if considered necessary by the instructor.
