Exam/Quiz policy:  There will be generally 1 quiz each TUESDAY with an exception
on exam weeks.  Quizzes are based on homework and lectures of the previous week.
No make-up quiz will be allowed.   2 lowest quiz grades will be dropped from the
course grade.   Make-up exams may be allowed only if you have verifiable and
compelling reason(s).  In this case, the student should notify the instructor prior to the exam.
Such a notification should be done through email or a written notice.

Please pay close attention to the school Academic Calendar for Grade Option change and class withdrawal deadlines.

Homework Policy:  There will be homework assignment for each lecture, and it is due every
Tuesday.  Graded homewok will be returned to you on Thursday.  You should expect to
spend a minimum of 4-6 hours each week on HW assignments.   The assigned problems prepare
you minimally for the exams.   Doing homework promptly is by far the most important
activity you will be engaged in and the best predictor of  your success in this course.

Working in a group on homework is strongly encouraged!
