Check out your homework and midterm grades
Check them out regularly to make sure that your homework is being graded and transcribed correctly!
GRADE = 0.25 * HOMEWORK + 0.25 * MIDTERM1 + 0.25 * MIDTERM2 + 0.25 * FINAL EXAM
I am still considering options for the exact format of the exams.
- Midterm #1: October, 22nd
- Midterm #2: November, 19th
- Final exam: Tuesday, December, 15th, 08:00AM - 10:59AM
- Homework, instructions and solutions will be posted on canvas.
- Homework will be posted every other week, due the following week.
- This class uses an all-electronic homework submission and grading process.
- You can type and scan your homework for submission.
- No paper submissions will be accepted.
- Turn in every Friday at 23:59, every other week.
- No late homework submissions will be accepted
- Please turn in a readable and organized homework. This is a big class!
Homework grading policy
- No points will be deducted by mistakes you make on homework.
- You will be assigned total points for every question you attempt to solve.
- A valid attempt has to show enough effort to convince the graders that you spent time on the question!
- Just repeating the problem statement IS NOT an example of a valid attempt.
- You get no points on a question if you did not attempt the question.
- Questions will be graded and feedback will be provided by the graders in case you make mistakes.
