Homework

Issued in Lecture; due middle of the following week in recitation; graded homework is returned at tutorials. Late homework grades will be reduced 20 percent until evening at the end of the week, and then 50 percent thereafter.

Tutorials

Tutorials are one hour per week in two modes; one is a tutorial presentation in which TA’s discuss homework, the other is interactive where students discuss problems with each other and the TA’s. Hours are first two days of the week; to be scheduled later. Participation is important and is included in the homework grade.

Grade

The term grade G is approximately the sum Q1+Q2+2F+H where Q1+Q2 is the total quiz grade, F is the final exam grade, and H is the homework and tutorial grade; each is normalized to 100.

Information

Homework solutions are available only from the teaching assistants. Spare homework sets, lecture notes, etc. will be available in the course office.
