Grading • Class participation 5% • Homework * 40% • Mid-term 20% • Final 35% * We’ll be using MATLAB for much of the homework. It is available on the MIT server cluster machines. Please turn in a copy of your MATLAB code with each assignment. This helps us to assign partial credit if you make an error.

Academic honesty policy You may work with others on your homework I.E. you may discuss your homework with other students Write, at the top of your HW, “I worked with…” But, each student must solve each problem themselves (including writing their own MATLAB code), and write up the solutions themselves –I t i s never acceptable to copy from someone else’s solution If it seems you have copied from someone else’s solution, you will get 0 points for that problem, and we will go over the rest of your HW with a fine-tooth comb Since it is often difficult to tell who copied from whom, don’t let anyone else copy off of your homework!

Academic honesty policy You are expected not to make use of solutions or assignments from previous years Obviously, don’t copy off anyone else’s exam, either

Policy on late homework Short extensions may be granted due if you have a reasonable excuse (MIT sporting event, wedding, job interview, etc.), provided you notify us on or before the day the homework is assigned . However, note that you will receive homework assignments nearly 2 weeks before they are due, so just being out of town for a day or two may not be a sufficient excuse. For more unforeseen difficulties, an extension may also be granted, provided you get a letter from your doctor, a Dean, Counseling & Support Services, or equivalent. However, note that we may be limited in our options if we learn of your difficulty too late. Please let us know informally that there may be a problem as soon as you know of it (not 2 weeks after the assignment was due, and not at the end of the semester!).
