Computation of Grades

In order to pass this course you should obtain a grade of at least 50% on the final exam. If you score less than 50% on the final exam, then your final grade will be your score on the final exam. If your grade on the final exam is at least 50%, then your final grade will be calculated by the following formula:

Assignments: 20%
Midterm Exam: 20%
Presentation: 10%
Final Exam: 50%


Collaboration and Cheating

Students are encouraged to discuss general strategies for approaching the homework problems with other students. However, you should solve the problems yourself and all written work should be your own. Copying from another student is cheating and will not be tolerated - it also doesn't help you in the long run.

Students found cheating will be reported to the university. Punishment can range from receiving a zero on the assignment, to failing the course, to being expelled from the university. Allowing another student to copy your work is just as serious as copying. So if you copy from another student, you are putting their university career on the line too.
