Grading policy: Home-work: approx. one set per week 20% (if HW av. higher than Exam av.) 10% (if HW av. lower than Exam av.) Exams: Midterm and Final Exams xx% Remaining part of ﬁnal grade. 100% University policy on Academic Conduct: Cheating on examinations, submitting work of other students as your own, or plagiarism in any form will result in penalties ranging from an F on the assignment to expulsion from the university, depending on the seriousness of the oﬀense.
