Homework All homework is due at, or before, the beginning of class one week after it is assigned -- unless otherwise specified. All homework is to be written, typed or printed on one side only of 8.5 x 11 inch paper. Multiple pages must be stapled (not clipped) together, as we will not accept responsibility for loose sheets. Hand in homework folded lengthwise with the text inside and with your name and assignment number on the inside and your name on the outside . Every day or fraction of a day late will incur the deduction of one letter grade. You should do the work by yourself -- otherwise you will not learn the concepts nor do well on the exams.

Grading Overall grade based on Homework - 10% Exam #1 - 30% Exam # 2 -30% Exam # 3 -30% The top 5% in the class will earn a grade of A+. The rest of the grades will be in decrements of 5% of the lowest of these top grades. For example if the low of the top 5% of the class is 88 points, then those with grades of >83.6 (95% of 88) will earn A; those with 79.2> grades > 83.5 (90% of 88) will earn A-, and so on.

No food or drink in the lecture hall – this is not a cafeteria, it is extremely rude to eat while someone is talking to you ! Turn off cell phones If your phone rings, I will ask you to stand so everyone can hear your conversation.
