Both analytical and computational. Assigned and graded regularly.
Note: no late homework will be accepted except a proved reasonable excuse (such as hospitalization, a family emergency, and a major religious activity) is provided.
There will be one midterm and one final, close-book and close-note exams.
The final exam will be cumulative.
Midterm exam: 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm, Friday, October 27, Warren Lecture Hall 2205.
Final exam: 11:30 am - 2:30 pm, Friday, December 8, Warren Lecture Hall 2205.
Note: neither rescheduled nor make-up exams will be allowed unless a written verification of a valid excuse (such as hospitalization, family emergency, religious observance, court appearance, etc.) is provided.
|Grading||The final course grade will be determined based on the exams and homework with the following weights: homework - 20%, midterm exam - 30%, and the final exam - 50%.|
