These are scheduled every week on Monday or Wednesday evening,
6:30 - 8:30 pm, room DRL 4C8. During alternate weeks these will
serve as problem sessions where you will individually present your
solutions to the homework problems (see below). On the other
alternate weeks, Mr. Korman will hold sessions devoted to PAST problem
sets and the `A' problems (see below). Attendance at weekly labs.
is mandatory .
Homework is an extremely important part of this course.
Homework problems will be posted weekly each Monday on
this page. The homework assigned during a certain week is due
in your TAs mailbox by 5pm on Thursday of the following week.
There will be two types of homework problems: A and B. Type A problems
are assigned each week, whereas B problems are assigned
every other week. While the A problems are more or less standard
exercises, the B problems will be more substantial and sometimes quite
difficult. You may work together in small groups of your own choosing
on these problems, although each student's write-up should be his/her
own. On each assignment you hand in, write down the names of anyone
you collaborated with. Occasionally there will
be optional `C' problems which are meant as extra credit; people
looking for a challenge are encouraged to attempt them! The C problems
should be turned in on a separate sheet of paper directly to me.
As mentioned above, you may work in groups on homework
assignments, and report during our evening sessions individually but
as group members on the B part of the assignment.
Each group should have 3 - 5
members, and everyone in the same group should be giving and
taking (if you are always giving or always taking, you are in the
wrong group and should switch groups). I encourage you to work
together on the homework; sharing
ideas and discussing arguments with others is a big help.
We will have two exams during the course, a midterm and
a final exam. The midterm will be held on Thursday, March 1.
- Grading Policy: The final grades will be determined by
giving a 40% weight to homework and a 30% weight to each exam. While
your exam score is numerical, the homework grade consists of your
written performance and your presentations at the evening sessions.
Participating in class and working on extra credit C problems is
encouraged and will help to improve your grade.
