Grading Policy

Grades were be based on homework and midterm and final exams, counting in three equal proportions. If one of these components stood out from the other two, we recomputed an individual student's grade (without impacting any other student's grade) by tilting the weights slightly in that student's favor (e.g., 3:2:2 to accentuate one good component or 3:3:2 to discount one bad component).

Collaboration Policy

Collaboration was permitted on the homeworks but not on the exams...

Late Work Policy

Homework was due at the beginning of class on the day it was due. Late homeworks were not be accepted after solutions are available. Before solutions are published, late homeworks were penalized at the rate of 10% per day late.
