Midterm and Final ExamThe due date for homework is Friday 1pm (at the start of class). Collaboration is allowed for the homework but you have to write your own solution. You are allowed to turn in one late homework (without penalty) in the quarter. However, you must inform me about turning in your homework late BEFORE the due date, and you must turn in the late homework within a week of the due date. In general, if the homework is late within a week of the due date, it is still acceptable but will be graded based on 20% points off. Collaboration Table
* You may use a computer or calculator while doing the homework, but may not refer to this as justification for your work. For example, "by Mathematica" is not an acceptable justification for deriving one equation from another. Also, since computers and calculators will not be allowed on the exams, it's best not to get too dependent on them. |
