{\bf Honor Code:} This course will be conducted under the Honor
Code. Copying another student's work in an exam is of course a
violation of the code.
{\bf Homework:} Is important! Homework will be assigned about
once a week and will not be accepted late without e.g. a medical
excuse. To do well you \underline{must} keep up with the homework
and review frequently. You are allowed and encouraged to discuss
the problems with classmates, however, the work you hand in
should be formulated by yourself only and should not be merely
copied.
{\bf Homework Presentation:} On a rotating basis students are
asked to present some homework solution.
{\bf Grading Policy:} Each of the 2 tests will be worth 100
points and the final exam will be worth 150 points. The homework
will account for 100 points total. Letter grades will be based on
total points out of the 450. Active class participation will be
taken into account for border line situations.
