Introduction to Quantum Mechanics by Griffiths and Schroeter 
Homework: There will be weekly homework assignments in this course.
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.
FZ Policy In order to get a D grade from this course, a student must show an overall achievement level of %. An important part of this achievement must be accumulated through regular studying, before taking the final exam. The student must demonstrate this by accumulating sufficient prefinal points from the first and second exams such that the overall average will be over % even if the remaining assessment grades (i.e. Homework+Quiz+Final) average to less than or equal to twice this prefinal grade. (Also, see below for the attendance requirement.) Therefore a student cannot get a D grade if the prefinal achivement level is below % from the first and second exams. This means, a student will receive the FZ grade (and will not be able to take the final exam) if the average is lower than % from the first and second exams! (If the average is %, the student will need to receive from the remaining assesments [Homework+Quiz+Final] to get a D grade.)
