1.Midterm Examination 40%
2.Final Examination 45%
The final exam may include some of the material (the parts I feel the class did not perform well on) from the mid-term exam in addition to the new material covered after the mid-term exam. Due to a large number of students in the class, the exams possibly will consist mostly of multiple choices questions. You are encouraged to have a calculator with you during the exams. You may also take a self-prepared formula sheet (A4 paper) to the exams. You will be seated in a particular order for the exams. Your seat will be made known to you right before the exam begins.
3.Attendance, participation in the class discussion and ad hoc homework assignments 15%
Homework problems will be assigned and collected. I will not grade your homework regularly. However, you are encouraged to do it diligently and turn it in on time. It would have significant bearings on your final grade. I will post on the website the solutions manual to the end-of-chapter problems in the book. I suggest that you complete as many end-of-chapter questions and problems as possible. You can expect to be called upon frequently in this class. You are responsible for all lectures, assignments, and class discussions. I encourage you to form groups of 2-3 people to work on the end-of-chapter questions, problems and cases.
