will be four tests(100 pts each), nine quizzes and four projects (10 pts
each), and a comprehensive final. Weakly homework will be collected. The
semester grade will be formed from the 10 best quizzes and projects - 15%,
homework - 10%, three best tests - 25% each. The grade for the course is
based on 75% of the semester grade and 25% of the Final exam according
to the scale:
A 90 -100; B 80-89; C 70-79; D 60-69;
F below 59.
No make up tests or quizzes will be
given (unless proper excuse is provided).
Homework will be collected and graded weakly. It is the instructor's experience
that keeping up with the homework is an essential part of
the preparation for the course. The problems on the tests and the quizzes
will be similar to the homework.
