Homework Policy
 Written homework will be posted to the assignments page no less than a week before it is to be turned in. Homework may be turned in either by hardcopy or emailed directly to me.
 Late homework will be penalized 10% for each day it is late.
 You may collaborate on your homework and help each other with difficult problems. However, everyone is responsible for turning in his/her own homework and writing his/her own numerical code. Consult the honor principle (below) as it applies to this course.
 Your solutions must be clearly written and you must form coherent arguments to discuss your results. Please make sure your writing is legible.
Student Project
 Each student will read and summarize one paper relevant to solving hyperbolic partial differential equations. The student can choose a suitable paper of interest to him/her that is approved by the instructor. I am happy to suggest topics and articles that are interesting and assessible. Students can either provide a written or oral report (during an X hour) by the end of term. A good report will include an overview of the problem, a discussion of the numerical method, and numerical simulations that either reproduce the experiments or demonstrate the advantages of the proposed algorithm.
Grades  

The course grade will be based upon the scores on the exams, homework, and the project as follows:  
Exams  200 points (each) 
Homework  100 points (each) 
Project  100 points 
Total  450 points 
The Honor Principle
On Homework:  Collaboration is permitted and encouraged,
but no copying , and to be clear, this means no copying even
from a board or scrap of paper on which a solution was hashed out
collaboratively. What a student turns in as a
homework solution is to be his or her own understanding of how to do
the problems. Students must state what sources they have consulted,
with whom they have collaborated, and from whom they have received
help. The solutions you submit must be written by you alone. Any
copying (electronic or otherwise) of another person's solutions, in
whole or in part, is a violation of the Academic Honor Code.
Moreover, if in working with someone they have provided you with an important idea or approach, they should be explicitly given credit in your writeup. Hints given in office hours need not be cited. Note: It is not sufficient to annotate your paper with a phrase like ``I worked with Joe on all the problems.'' Individual ideas are to be credited at each instance; they represent intellectual property. 

On Exams:  Students may not receive
assistance of any kind from any source (living, published,
electronic, etc), except the professor, and may not give assistance
to anyone. Matters of clarification are to be left to the
professor. If you have any questions as to whether some action would be acceptable under the Academic Honor Code, please speak to me, and I will be glad to help clarify things. It is always easier to ask beforehand. 
Disabilities, Religious Observances,
etc.
Students with disabilities who may need disabilityrelated
academic adjustments and services for this course are encouraged
to see their instructor privately as early in the term as
possible. Students requiring disabilityrelated academic
adjustments and services must consult
the Student Accessibility Services office (205
Collis Student Center, 6469900,
Student.Accessibility.Services@Dartmouth.edu). Once SAS has
authorized services, students must show the originally signed SAS
Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on SAS letterhead to
their instructor. As a first step, if you have questions about whether you
qualify to receive academic adjustments and services, you should
contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions will remain
confidential.
Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that
occur during this academic term. If you have a religious observance
that conflicts with your participation in the course, please meet with
your instructor before the end of the second week of the term to discuss
appropriate accommodations.
