Grading: Homeworks: 20%, Midterm: 20%, Final: 60%.
Difficulty: This is an introductory course in Combinatorics and Graph Theory. The students are expected to learn the theory and solve problems on the homeworks. The problems will be both computational and require some proof abilities.
Other expectations: I would guess that the average student should spend about 8-10 hours per week outside of class to get a decent grade. Much of this time should be spent on the homeworks, but some should be spent on reading the book and absorbing the class material.
