Grades will be determined by a
student's performance on a midterm
(20%), individual written assignments
(30%), and a group project and
assignments (50%). The project grades
will be based on a combination of
presentations, write-ups, and the
project itself. The class will not be
graded on a curve.
Individual homework should be done
independently. It is fine to discuss
the general techniques and methods
required, but you must do your own
work in solving the problems and
writing up the solutions. After you
turn in your individual homework, you
may use this information in the group,
combined with others homework, to aid
in the project redesigns.
There will be no allowance for
late group presentations or
assignments. We have a schedule to
keep and the rest of the class is
depending on you to get your work done
We will accept late individual
homework assignments, but the grades
will be reduced. The homework is due
at the start of class.
