Course Policies Grading: Exams (3): 80% total Homework & Quizzes: 20%

Course Policies Homework Assignments and solutions will be posted on Sakai. I prefer that you hand them in electronically. If it is not feasible, or unduly tedious in terms of typing in equations or scanning pages, then a hardcopy is ok. If you hand in a hardcopy, I make a photocopy for yourself just in case it gets misplaced. DO NOT HAND IN PART OF AN ASSIGNMENT ELECTRONICALLY AND PART AS A HARDCOPY.

Course Policies Homework Depending on the size of the class I may grade 1 problem/section per problem set, of my choosing. If you hand the homework in on time and with a reasonable effort you get 50%. The other 50% is based on the graded problem. You may work in teams of up to 4 on the homework, but everyone is to hand in their own work

Course Policies NO PHOTOCOPIES (or e-copies). Please include the names of those you worked with on the homework. Homework is due when Sakai and the syllabus says it is due (usually 10:20 AM), when class begins on that day.

Course Policies Homework Late homework will not be graded and will receive a zero. I will try my best to post solutions in a timely manner. Some assignments may be long, hard, and often (seemingly) tedious, but they will prepare you for the exams. So try not to copy your friend’s assignments, or split the assignment and share the answers.

Course Policies Exams There will be 3 exams. They are cumulative. They are closed book. They will be hard but very fair and will be designed to determine if you understand the material, not if you can regurgitate it. Do not use a programmable calculator, do not copy from your neighbors, do not try in any way shape or form to cheat.

Course Policies Citing Literature In assignments I may ask you to find and/or review some information from the scientific literature. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE during these assignments, properly cite ANY reference material you use to formulate your answers, and DO NOT EVER directly quote text from one of these sources (not even if you put the text in quotation marks). This is plagiarism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
