There will be one in-class midterm exam on Wednesday February 25.
The final exam will be held on Friday, April 24th, 3:30 - 6:00 p.m. in LSK 201.

Exams should be written in pen.

Books and/or papers and/or calculators will not be permitted during exams. There will be no make-up exams. Anyone needing special arrangements for exams must notify the instructor by the second week of classes.


Homework assignments will be posted on this course website usually on Friday and they will be collected, one week later. On this web-page you will find the sections from the text that you should be reading before to come to class. The instructor will try to observe this pre-determined schedule. It is important that you check regularly this course webpage. Late homework will not be accepted. Homework is the essential educational part of this course. You cannot expect to work problems on exams if you have not worked lots of homework problems. Therefore, it is important that you spend an adequate time on homework regularly, each week. You can work together on the homework, but you should always write up your own homework solutions in your own words.


10% on the homework
30% on the Midterm Exam
60% on the Final Exam
