Exams and Assessment:
There will be one midterm and one final exam. All exams will be open book and open notes. There will be no make-up exams unless pre-arrangement is made with the instructor.
Corresponding to the course materials, we will have several labs this semester. I will distribute lab instruction and lab report for you to fill in. You don’t need to buy any lab manual from the bookstore.
During the lab session, besides doing labs, we will do exercises. Students are asked to work on problems based on the materials you have learned that week. Students will be asked to show their work and the instructor may give problem-solving strategy.
1. You can visit the instructor during office hours or during a time that works well for you by making an appointment.
2. If you can find a tutor, he/she can review problems with you.
3. Study group are welcome, as long as helpful discussion is developed.
