All homeworks are due Wednesday at 4:00 PM (before lecture) in Room 2131 and will be returned in your lab section after grading. Unfortunately, late homeworks cannot be accepted except for verifiable medical excuses approved by the instructor. Homeworks will include prelab exercises. If you do not turn in the homework before the lab, your maximum grade for that lab will be decreased 50%.
Each homework problem will be graded on a threepoint scale: 0 (not a full effort), 1 (close but fundamental problem), and 2 (correct).
The midterm and final exam are mandatory components of this course. Unfortunately, no early or late exams are possible. If an unavoidable emergency prevents your attendance at the midterm or final, you will be required to submit written proof of the emergency and the makeup exam will likely be given as an oral exam with the instructor.
