This is where I will post all course related materials including take home tests and assignments on snow days.

Please make ita habit to check it daiily, seven days a week.

This is a very tentative schedule and will be revised regularly. It should help you pace yourself. EOO=4n+1, n=0,1,2,…

Your grades will be based on

4 Your assigments must have the following (QQUE) self assessments

√ QUALITY

√ QUANTITY

√ UNDERSTANDING

√ EFFORT

GENERAL POINT DISTRIBUTION for the Cumulative HW Assignments

10 % Neatness
  • I should be able to follow your work
  • Leave ~3/4" margins
  • You are encouraged to reuse paper or use recycled paper
  • but all sheets must be the same size
 30 % Correctness (this maybe 60% for some assignments)
  • "Randomly" selected set of problems will be graded
 60 % Completeness (this maybe 30% for some assignments)
  • One point per problem or per part
     X NO, you cannot resubmit previously graded work!
     X Yes, you have the solutions to some problems, and,
         yes, you have to submit them in your own writing!



And one day, this class will end too …

with it, all the pain and agony!

Enjoy the course while you can.
