(2) Bb Vista will be used for course communications, material distribution, and grade distribution. Please check your grades often and carefully. If you want to dispute any grade, it MUST be done within one week after the return of the homework or exam. Statute of Limitations: After the one week, no grade changes will be made. See your recitation instructor or teaching assistant for grade changes. (3) The overall grade will be a weighted sum of the components listed above. No components will be curved. (4) There will be no make ­up exams/quizzes unless arrangements are made at least one week in advance of the exam/quiz date, or because of documented emergencies. A valid excuse must be presented to an instructor. (5) Homework assignments will be due in the regularly scheduled recitation one week after they were assigned. Late homework will not be accepted, except with prior arrangement or because of a documented emergency. Collaboration is permitted and encouraged on homework problems, but each student must hand in their own work. No photocopies! (7) TA office hours will be held every Tuesday and Thursday with locations posted on Bb Vista. Students can come in during this time to meet with TAs/Professors for any questions/doubts. In addition, professor's office hours will be posted on the course web site. (8) Students in the Honors Program may get honors credit by completing a project. Please see your recitation instructor by the end of the second week of the term. Lab/Recitation Policies (1) Your weekly meeting will consist of two portions: a recitation and a lab, of equal duration. 2. The policies for the lab portion have been posted online in the Lab folder on Bb Vista. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GO OVER THESE POLICIES AND BE FAMILIAR WITH THEM BEFORE YOUR FIRST LAB/RECITATION SECTION! 3. Several problems will be posted on the web site prior to recitation. During the recitation portion students will be selected to present solution to these problem at the board. These presentations will be graded and these grades will determine the class performance part of the final grade. (6) Recitations and labs will be held every week, including the first week. The locations for recitation sections are posted on master schedule. Verification during recitation sections will be done using verification sheets. Recitation will be held during the first week of class. While students can work in groups during the lab sessions, verification is based on individual performance.
