Exams, Homework, Grading Policy
Your grade in the course will be based on your performance in several areas:
Approximately weekly problem sets will be assigned. These will be quite long in the middle third of the course, but somewhat less than average length (for a graduate course) in the first and last thirds.
Students are STRONGLY encouraged to work on the problem sets TOGETHER!!
I insist on an independent write-up of the problems from each student - copying another student's presentation is not acceptable - but the process of working out the main ideas and steps in the solutions can (and should!) be done in a small working group.
The TA will grade the problem sets and provide a solution (placed somewhere accessible) approximately 1 week after the problems are due.
Late policy: A problem set may be handed in for full credit up until the start of the first lecture after the due date. Afterwards, the problem set receives half credit up until the start of the second lecture after the due date. Problems later than that will not be graded.
