HOMEWORK | |

Recommended homework problems are listed on the syllabus. Symbiotic student interactions are encouraged; parasitic interactions are discouraged. No homework will be collected; solutions of all text exercises are in the back of the text. | |

QUIZZES | |

On five Fridays (19 January, 26 January, 9 February, 16 February and 23 February), a short (approximately fifteen-minute) quiz will be given at the beginning of class. Each quiz will be worth 25 points. On each quiz, at least half of the points will be taken verbatim from the recommended homework. | |

EXAMS | |

There will be two in-class exams, the Mid-Term on Friday, 2 February 01, and the Final on Thursday, 1 March 01. In general, the exam will be graduated-the first question being easiest, the last, hardest. Each exam will be worth 100 points. | |

GRADING | |

Of the five quizzes given, the four highest grades will count.
Hence the total value of the quizzes is 100 points.
A grand total of 300 points is available in the term.
Grades are based on a floating scale; the scale is based on the
difficulty of the questions/assignments. The maximum number of points
required for an A is 270; for a B, 240; for a C, 210.
Final letter grades will be assigned based on the total number of points
earned, with some consideration given to consistency, progress in the
course, etc. | |

MISSED
QUIZZES,
HOMEWORK AND
EXAMS | |

In general no make-up quizzes or tests will be given, and late homework will not be accepted. A grade of zero will be recorded for all missed work. Rare and unusual circumstances, however, will be considered. | |

NOTICE | |

The management reserves the right to change the above policies. Such changes (if any) will be announced at a regular class meeting or by e-mail. |
