(Dec 14): Final exam results
|Homework and Quizzes:||
|GSIs and Discussion Sections:||
|Grading and policies:||
Homework: Weekly homework is posted on the course web page, and
it is in general due in each Friday discussion section.
Collaboration on the homework is encouraged, but each student must
write his/her own solutions and not copy them from anyone else. The
homework will be graded "pass/fail". Late homework will not be
accepted, but the two lowest scores will be dropped when computing the
Quizzes: There will be weekly quizzes given each Friday in the discussion sections. They will consist of chosen homework problems, possibly with different numerical constants. There will be no make-up quizzes, but the two lowest quiz scores will be dropped when computing the grade.
Exams: There will be two in-class midterm exams, scheduled for Tuesday October 4 and Tuesday November 8 between 11am - 12:30pm. The final exam will be given on Wednesday December 14 between 8am - 11am. You may bring one (ordinary sized) sheet of paper with writing on both sides to the exams. Apart from this one sheet, the exams are "closed book". In particular, you may not bring textbooks, notebooks, or calculators. If there is an emergency alarm during the midterms or the final exam, leave the exam at the desk and walk out. You may of may not be allowed back to complete the work.
Grade corrections: The grades for exams or quizzes will be changed only if there is a clear error on the part of the grader, such as adding up marks incorrectly. Problems must be brought to the attention of the GSI immediately after the exams are returned.
Grades: The final grade will be based on weekly homework assignments and quizzes (20%), Midterm 1 (20%), Midterm 2 (20%), and the Final Exam (40%). The lowest midterm grade can be dropped and replaced by the final exam grade. This allows you to miss one midterm, but your chances are improved if you take both.
Incomplete grades: Incomplete "I" grades are almost never given. The only justification is a documented serious medical problem or genuine personal/family emergency. Falling behind in this course or problems with workload in other courses are not acceptable reasons.
Special arrangements: If you are a student with a disability registered by the Disabled Student Services (DSS) on UCB campus and if you require special arrangements during exams, you must provide the DSS document and make arrangements via email or office hours at least 10 days prior to each exam, explaining your circumstances and what special arrangements need to be done. Also see your GSI as soon as possible to make arrangements for the homeworks/quizzes.
