Homework: Homework will be assigned weekly.
Homework is due every Friday by 4pm and should be placed in
the drop-box in the basement of APM. No late homework will be accepted. If, for any reason, you

The use of any electronic devices (cell-phone, smart watch, earbud, calculator, etc) is prohibited during exams and it will be considered cheating, thus it will be reported to the Academic Integrity Office.
Grading: Your final score will be calculated as follows
15% Homework + 5% Presentation+ 10% Quiz + 25% Midterm + 45% Final Exam
Regrades: Homework and midterm exams will be returned in the discussion sections. If you wish to have your homework or exam regraded, you must return it immediately to your TA. Regrade requests will not be considered once the homework or exam leaves the room. If you do not retrieve your homework or exam during discussion section, you must arrange to pick it up from your TA within one week after it was returned in order for any regrade request to be considered.
