Coursework and Grading
There will be 5 or 6 homeworks. Most homeworks will be graded on a 10-point
scale. Homework is always due before class. Homework handed in up to one
week late will receive a 10% penalty. Homework handed in up to two weeks
late will receive a 30% penalty. Homework submitted after two weeks will
receive a zero. Submit your homework by mailing it to the TA.
For the purposes of this class, cheating is defined as:
The penalty for cheating is failure of the course.
- Copying all or part of another student's homework
- Allowing another student to copy all or part of your homework.
