Textbook

  • We will go through most sections in Chapters 12-17.

Attendance Policy

  • You are expected to attend every class. Coming late and leaving early should be rare occurrences since it is impolite and distracting to the entire class. However, it is better to be tardy than not to come at all. If you are tardy, please enter as quietly as possible and sit near the entrance. If you have to leave early for any reason, please let me know ahead of time and sit near the exit, if possible.
  • Attendance will be recorded beginning 01/21/2014. You will be rewarded 2% bonus points if you miss no class or have a documental excuse (e.g., doctor's excuse) for each missed class. You will fail this course if you miss more than 9 classes, unless your overall score is over 90%.

Evaluation

  • We will have homeworks, three in-class exams, and the comprehensive final exam. They count 25%, 45%, and 30%, respectively.
  • Your grade is determined by your overall score as below:
    90% - 102% = A, 80% - 89% = B, 70% - 79% = C, 60% - 69% = D, 0% - 59% = F.
  • Doing homework seriously is of crucial importance for gaining mastery of the materials and obtaining a good grade.
  • For each homework, I will select one problem to grade.
  • Your homework score will be determined by the following two equally weighted criteria: completeness (of all assigned problems) and correctness (of the selected problem). 

Exam Guide (PDF)

  • This is for you to prepare exams.
  • It also serves as a study guide, because it lists the most important knowledge and skills you should know in this class.
