Grading Policies

 

Homework:  Homework will be assigned each day.  Unless stated otherwise, the homework is due at the beginning of the second lecture after the homework was assigned.  Please try the homework when it is assigned so that, if you have problems, you can ask questions at the next lecture.  You are encouraged to discuss homework problems with others in the class.  However, the work that you submit must be your own and be written individually.  No late homework will be accepted.  The lowest 15% of your homework grades will be dropped.

 

Quizzes:  Quizzes will be given to encourage you to keep current with the material and to provide the instructor with a measure of how well you understand a concept.  No make-up quizzes are given.  The lowest 20% of your quiz grades will be dropped.
