Course Work: Homeworks 20% Project and PSOs 15% Midterm 30% (Evening exam - 8-10pm on March 7 in BRNG 2290) Final 35% (Comprehensive) All exams are closed book, closed notes. Homework and Exam policy: Homeworks are due in hard copy (not by email), at the beginning of the lecture. Late homeworks will not be accepted. Missing an exam implies a grade of zero in that exam, unless there is a properly documented reason (e.g., medical with documentation). Examples of non-valid reasons include oversleeping, forgetting, discretionary travel (travel whose timing is under your control, such as an interview trip), and a host of others. Such policy precedents are difficult for an instructor to deviate from without running the risk of being accused of "treating people unequally" ...etc, so I hope none of you will put me in that situation.
