Grading Scheme
Homeworks+Quiz : 15%
Project: 20%
Midterm: 30%
Final : 35%
Policies and Guidelines
- Quizzes will be announced. There will be no makeup quiz.
- Homework will be due at the beginning of the class on the due date. Late homework will not be accepted.
- You are allowed to collaborate on homework. However, copying solutions is absolutely not permitted. Offenders will be reported for disciplinary action as per university rules.
- Any appeals on grading of homeworks, quiz or midterm scores must be resolved within one week of the return of graded material.
- Attendance is in lectures and tutorials strongly recommended but not mandatory. However, you are responsible for catching the announcements made in the class.
- Many of the homeworks will include MATLAB based computer exercise. Some proficiency in programming numerical algorithms is essential for both the homework and project.
