## Course Format

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS: Problems from the book will be assigned every week, solutions will be posted on the web page . To fully understand the material, you should work most of the problems on your own without help of the solution key. Homeworks will not be graded.
QUIZZES: Closed-book quizzes will be given on alternate Fridays, the first one on April 9. There will be lectures on the other Fridays. There will be no make-up quizzes.
COURSE GRADE will be computed from the average of the 5 quizzes (50%) and the (closed book) final exam (50%). If you need to miss a quiz due to unavoidable circumstances AND notify the instructor beforehand, it will not be counted and the final exam will count 10% more.
