Quizzes, Tests, and grading

In this course we will try to do many examples and problems. Example problems will be worked out in every class. You will be expected to work on them during class and do other recommended problems at home, by yourself or with your study group. There are also practice assignments on webassign. It is highly recommended that you form a study group and meet with students in your study group atleast once a week.

There will be quizzes almost every week, given IN CLASS. The quiz problems will be similar to the ones worked out in class. More details on that will be posted soon.The total points out of all the quizzes will count to about 30% of the final grade. There will be 8 or more quizzes and they will count for 200 points towards final grade. A bonus of 10 points will be given if you take all the quizzes.
There will also be extra credit problems assigned in class and it is your responsibility to attend class to find out what they are. I may or may not post them on update page.

There will be 3 tests (also IN CLASS) and the best 2 will count towards final grade. No make-ups unless in a serious emergency.

Writing only answers in test, will fetch only small amount of credit. Please always explain your work and present solutions step by step. This will also help you to get partial credit even if answer is wrong.
