**Exam/Quiz policy:** There will be generally 1 quizzes 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
me prior to the exam through email.

**Homework Policy:**
Homeworks are mostly assigned online through www.CourseCompass.com using the
package of MyMathLab.
Students are all required to register with www.CourseCompass.com (and click "Request Access").
You'll need to use my Web Course ID: **li72118** to register into my class. (Be sure to use the
correct text book for this class by comparing the cover page and the ISBN number).

Each week, there will be also 2 - 5 Written Homework Problems collected. Two will be carefully graded. These written problems are required to be completed in great details and clear mathematical language.

You should expect to spend a minimum of 2-3 hours on each assignment (online and written). 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!**
