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 make-up 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.
