|Exams & Grading:||"Cheat sheets" will not be allowed during the exams,
but you will be provided with sufficient information for solving the
problems without memorization.
There is an attendance requirement for this course: A student may not miss more than 6 hours of class in order to pass the course. Further absences may be compensated by completing assignments which will take much longer time than the corresponding class time.

Homework for this week: There will be weekly homework assignments in this course. Homework is due on the Tuesday of the following week at 8:45, in class, before class starts.
Problem solving sessions: Occasionally, we will hold problem solving sessions, during the recitation hour. A problem will be asked, and all students will be expected to solve the problem on their own. You can use your textbooks or notes, but may not discuss the problem with your friends. You may discuss it with the instructor. You will have to complete the solution and hand it in during the session, your solution will be graded as a quiz.
You can view your grades through the Stars system.
