Homework will be assigned after each lecture and due on the following Wednesday in class. Late homework will not be graded, but the worst two scores will be dropped.  Please put your name, your section number, the homework set number, and the date on your homework paper.  Quizzes will be given occasionally and will be announced during the lecture. No make-ups for quizzes but the worst score will be dropped. 



Two mid-term exams and one accumulative final exam. Attending classes is essential to help you do well on the exams. Some application examples, which are not in the textbook, will be given during lectures and will be tested. The two mid-terms will take place during the regular class period.   No make-up exams will be given for unexcused absences.  The final exam will serve as the make-up exam for an excused and documented absence.


Grading policy

Discussion of the homework problems is encouraged, but cooperation/copying solutions is prohibited. Duplicate solutions will be considered evidence of academic dishonesty.  The University policy on  academic dishonesty will be strictly enforced (see Student Handbook). All homework, quizzes and exams will be graded for mathematical correctness and written presentation. Points will be deducted for sloppiness, incoherent or insufficient explanation, or for lack of supporting rationale. The solutions should be presented clear enough so that your fellow students would be able to understand both the calculations and logic.
