Examinations
The purpose of the examinations is to demonstrate your ability to solve problems by the techniques discussed in the course. It is not enough to get the correct answer. In fact, the correct answer obtained by error or by a trivial method is worthless. On the other hand, an incorrect answer, because of a trivial error, may be worth nearly full score if obtained by the appropriate method. Homework
The purpose of the homework is to learn how to pass the examinations. There is a good correlation between homework scores and exam scores.
  • Homework is due at the beginning of the next class after it is assigned.
  • Homework solutions are posted outside my office immediately after class.
  • Homework relates to the lesson at hand. Therefore, it is not accepted late.
  • Each homework problem is graded 1, 1/2, or 0. However, at midterm, total homework scores greater than 50% are increased to 100%. Similarly, at the end of the semester, total homework scores for the second half of the semester that are greater than 50% are increased to 100%.
