Homework Policy

The homework scores not only count count towards your final grade and allow you to practice and refine your skills but, historically, those students who do the homework sets regularly fair better on the exams.


The course grade will be based upon the scores on the two midterm exams, the final exam, and the homework.

Midterm 1 100 points
Midterm 2 100 points
Final Exam 150 points
50 points
Total 400 points

The Honor Principle
