**Grading
policy: **

** **

· Only neatly written problems will be graded

· A correct answer without a correct outline of the work will not carry any grade

· All incorrect work must be clearly crossed out on the page

· In cases where more than one solution is presented for a problem, the solution with the most errors will be graded

· Each solution must have proper units

·
**Makeups will be given only
under extreme circumstances**. It is
expected that the student will contact the instructor sufficiently in
advance of an exam or have sufficient reason that they could not do so.

** **

**
Quizzes: **

· Will cover theoretical aspects (definitions and derivations) and problem solving skills

· Will be closed book, closed notes, with no crib sheet

· No makeup quizzes, but lowest quiz grade will be dropped

· May or may not be announced, may or may not be in class

Homework: **

· Problems are due the Saturday of the week after they are assigned

· Problems will be graded only if they are written neatly

Statement on Academic Dishonesty: **
Cheating on exams and plagiarism in the preparation of homework will be
considered unacceptable conduct. Academic sanctions will be taken against
all parties involved in the act of cheating and/or plagiarism. A student
participating in the act of cheating and/or plagiarism for the second time
will receive a failing grade in this class. Consult the Student Code of
Conduct section in the Undergraduate Bulletin for more details.

**
Statement on Disruptive Conduct: **I
would appreciate it if all students would be considerate of the learning
mission of the class and to refrain from activity which is disruptive
