It is a good idea to keep up with the course, since each topic builds on the previous ones. You can't learn everything the last week.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 Mondays, the first one on October 7th. There will be lectures on the other Mondays. There will be no make-up quizzes.COURSE GRADEwill be computed from the average of the 5 quizzes (50%) and the 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.

You should attend all lectures, discussion and problem sessions, take notes and ask questions

You should take advantage of office hours, especially if you are falling behind or having trouble.
