Assignments and Exams
There are seven graded problem sets for this course. Students may collaborate with classmates on the problem sets, but copying problem set solutions is not permitted. Any student who copies another problem set or allows his or her problem set to be copied will be assigned a 0 for that problem set.
There are three one-hour exams. The exams will be closed book, but students may bring one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of notes to the exam. In addition to the exams, there will also be a final during exam week. The final will be comprehensive and will cover material from the entire course with an emphasis on material of the lecture 31 not covered by an hour exam.
