solutions
Attendance: Students are expected to come to
class regularly and on time. Homework: Lecturer will suggest some problems
from the textbook.
Students should read
the related textbook material and work on
the suggested problems. Exams: There will be one midterm,
and a final exam. All exams will be closed
book/closed notes. Calculators are not
allowed. Students whose Midterm Grade is
below 10 or Laboratory Grade is below 10 cannot
take the final exam!
Makeup: There will be no makeup exams for the midterm and final exams.
Laboratory: One laboratory session every week.
Grading: The weights that will determine the cumulative grade are as follows:
The final grades will be determined according to the distribution of cumulative grades.
