__Grading:__

3 hour exams* ..........................................................45%

Final Exam................................................................30 %

Problem Sets (Webassign HW)..................................10%

Laboratory work.......................................................10%

Warm Up Exercises......................................................5%

Class Participation....................................Up to 2% extra credit

Emphasis in grading will be placed on how each problem is solved. All work showing how the solution was obtained must be shown. An answer with the correct answer but poor method is inferior to one with the wrong answer but good method.

*The lowest score of the three in-class exams will count 5% and the other two will count for 20% each.

The lowest score on a problem set will be dropped. Problem sets will generally be assigned on a weekly basis and the students will have one week to complete them. Late assignments may be accepted with a 10% grade reduction. Students may help each other on problem sets but each student must write their own solution to each problem. Solving the homework problems is excellent practice for the exams.

Unexcused late HW will be penalized 10%. Email Dr. Kim-Shapiro before the due date and lateness can be excused

The lowest 3 warmup grades will be dropped

Students must complete the laboratory part of this course to receive credit. You must pass the lab portion of the class to pass the class. The labs will begin on January 23, 2023.

It is my goal to make this class as accessible as possible. If you anticpate or experience any obstacles to learning please see me. Students with disabilities should meet with me to discuss accomodations.
