Technicalities(3)

  • Problem sets (homework):

    • usually handed out (i.e. posted on course web site) on Wednesdays, to be returned the following Wednesdays before class

    • homework will be graded by graduate student TA (TBN)

    • credits accumulated over the semester determine your homework performance grade. Everyone may drop one homework assignment without penalty.

  • Travel: Due to conference travel, I will not give lectures on Feb. 2 and Feb 28. Another instructor may give the lectures in my stead. As the 2-hr exams are held outside of class hours, some class hours may be cancelled. At this time it is likely that there will be no lectures on Feb. 1, 28

Technicalities(4)

  • Additional lectures (voluntary):Cover some material in more depth, review some math and physics, do some computer experiments to enhance learning. Some Thursdays 6 pm – 7 pm, will be announced

  • Final grades:

    • homework performance: 40%

    • clicker questions (participation) 5%

    • average of the two-hour-exams: 30%

    • final exam: 25%
