* = computer problem requiring MATLAB

** Grades **

- 20% based on homework
- MATLAB is available to UTEP students for free here, and it can also be used through myapps . Turn in printout (only) of MATLAB program and output. Tutorials on using MATLAB are here and here .
- homeworks are individual, not group, projects; and don't use the book MATLAB programs
- 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
- during a test, you cannot leave the room and return

- 20% based on Test II
- 40% based on Final (comprehensive)

90-100% | guaranteed A |
