Your Homework will count for 50 points out of a total of 600 points for the course, approximately 8.3% of your final grade. We drop the lowest three homework grades and each of the remaining homeworks carry equal weights.

Late Homework

The due dates for the first homework is Aug. 28 at 2:00 a.m. You should set up ypur account and work on homeworks well in advance of the due date.

Your instructor will not extend a due date unless you have an excused absence. However, since we drop the lowest three grades, missing one homework will not change your grade (of course, missing several will have an impact on your grade).
