Class attendance is strongly encouraged. In addition to new material, important course information will be given in class, and sometimes quizzes will be administered.

Homework will be assigned for each section. It is due a few days after the material is covered in class. To receive credit, you must show all your work, make sure your reasoning is clear, provide justifications when necessary, etc. Just an answer will not receive credit. A small number of randomly selected problems will be graded. It is very important to do all homework diligently in order to learn the material. If you are having trouble with your homework, get help from your classmates, instructor, and/or tutors. However, your homework must be your own work. No copying is allowed (copying will be considered cheating).

Quizzes will sometimes be given during class. Quizzes will not be announced in advance. They will be short and quick (5-10 minutes) and will test your knowledge and computational skills. You must be present in class (for the whole class period) in order to do the quiz. If you are late or leave early, your quiz grade may be lowered. No late quizzes are given unless you have a documented reason to miss class. However, two lowest scores are dropped, so if you miss just one or two of them, your zeros will be dropped. The quizzes are based on your homework. To do well on quizzes, do your homework diligently, check your answers, and ask questions whenever you miss something.

Exams: There will be three 50 minuntes long tests and one 2 hours long final comprehensive exam. If for any reason you are unable to take a test at the scheduled time, please let your instructor know as soon as possible, and certainly before the test. See schedule for exam dates.

Extra Help: It is essential not to fall behind, because each class may use the material studied previously. If you have trouble with some material, seek help in the following ways:

If you are having any difficulties, seek help immediately - don't wait until it is too late to recover from falling behind, or failing to understand a concept!
