Course Requirements and Grading There will be one midterm counting for 30% and one Fnal examination counting for 60% of the course grade. ±or the examinations, you are allowed to bring in a calculator and an 8.5 × 11 inch single-sided “crib” sheet on which you may write down whatever you wish. If the sheet is typed or contains photocopied materials, the font size has to be 10 point or larger. If you miss an examination, it is important that you inform me and the commerce o ce right away. In case you miss the examination for legitimate reasons, a makeup test will be given. In addition, there will be two problem sets, covering di erent topics in the course. Doing these f problem sets is essential to obtain a good understanding of the course materials. These problem sets are to be turned in and graded (each problem set will receive a grade of 0–4, where 0 gets no credit and 4 gets 100% credit). The two problem sets count for 10% of the Fnal grade and they will be important determinants in borderline cases. You are encouraged to work in groups
