    Grading policy is a semicatalogue:



    Most exam problems will be taken from the textbook. Solve them in advance, and you will do well! Same concerns quizzes.

    During the exams please keep in mind the following:
  • Calculators are  not  allowed 
  • Identical solutions (especially identically wrong ones) will  not  get credit. I reserve the right to decide what "identical" means. You still have the right to complain 
  • Do not argue about the distribution of the credits among different parts of a problem. I only accept complaints concerning my misunderstanding/misreadung your solution 
  • Show all your work. Correct answers without sufficient explanation might  not  get full credit 
  • Indicate clearly and unambiguously your final result. In proofs, state explicitly each claim 
  • Do not misread the questions or skip parts thereof. If you did, do not complain 
  • If you believe that a problem is misstated, do not try to solve it; explain your point of view instead. However, do not take advantage of this option: usually problems are stated correctly! 
  • Each problem has a reasonably short solution. If your calculation goes completely out of hands, something must be wrong (e.g., you might have chosen a wrong basis) 

    Grading policy
    I will take off a few (2-3) points for arithmetical mistakes. However,  a lot  of points will be taken off for `obvious' mistakes, i.e., either those that you can easily avoid or those showing a deep misunderstanding of the subject. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:
  • Things that don't make sense
  • A count of a case exceeding the total count
    Furthermore, solving a different problem (other than stated), even if perfect, will give you  no credit 
    * Of course, this only applies to problems that I am grading personally
