Homework: The homework will be
assigned weekly and collected on
Friday (unless otherwise specified),
at the beginning of the lecture.
The main purpose of the homework is to give you a variety of practice problems that allow you to actively learn the class material.
The homework will be graded by the reader and returned to you in the next discussion section.
Please note that there will be no make-up homework, but the two lowest homework scores will be dropped in the computation of your final grade.
Midterms: There will be two midterms, during
the regular class hours: 1st Midterm on F 2/7/20,

both will be in
our classroom (+extra room
Please make sure that you have no time conflicts. There will be no make-up exams. If you miss a midterm,
the missed midterm will not count but the remaining midterm and the final exam will count for more (see the grading scheme below).
Grading: Your final class score will be computed as the maximum of the following:
10% Homework + 25% Midterm 1 + 25% Midterm 2 + 40% Final
10% Homework + 30% (best of two
Midterms) + 60% Final
