**Homework.** Homework is assigned weekly and collected at the begining of the class onWednesday. Homework exercises are picked from the textbook. There is no make-up homework. The lowest two scores are dropped from the computation of your grade.

**Exam Dates:**

- Midterm 1: Monday of week 4, Apr 23, ** **

- Midterm 2: Monday of week 7, May 14,** **

-Cumulative Final Exam: Thursday, June 14, 8:00am-11:00pm.

**Grading.** For homework and exams, we will use centesimal system. In the end, we will calculate a “pre-final grade” by using the following two methods, and only the higher output will count.

- 10% Homework + 30% Best of the two midterms + 60%Final Exam.

- 10% Homework + 25% Midterm 1 + 25% Midterm 2 + 40% Final Exam.

**For the final grade we will use ABC system. It depends only on the rank of your pre-final grade in the class. Roughly, the first 25% of the class will get an A (including A+, A and A-), the second 50% will get a B (including B+, B and B-) and the last 25% will get a C or lower (including C+, C , C- and D).**

**Academic integrity.** Please review the regulations at the following website: http://www.deanofstudents.ucla.edu/Student-Conduct

**Notes.**

- Textbooks, Calculators, laptops and cell phones are prohibited during the Midterms and the Final Exam.

- There will be no make-up test. A missed test will count for a zero for that test.

- Students may work together to solve homework problems, but each student must write down his/her own solutions on separate copy. One should also write down the names of his/her collaborators.

- Exam grading complaint should be submitted to the instructor, no later than two weeks after the exam, and before the last lecture.
