** Grades **

- 20% based on homework
- homework problems involving MATLAB (*) can be run in the Computer Lab in Bell Hall during open hours. Turn in printout (only) of MATLAB program and output.
- homeworks are individual, not group, projects
- homework will be collected every due date, and selected problems will be graded
- late homework not accepted, even if absence is excused

- 20% based on Test I
- make-up tests will be given only for excused absences
- make-up tests will be different from scheduled tests

- 20% based on Test II
- 40% based on Final (comprehensive, but with emphasis on Chapters 7,8)

90-100% | guaranteed A |

80-89% | guaranteed B or better |

70-79% | guaranteed C or better |

60-69% | guaranteed D or better |

below 60% | no guarantees |
