- All assignments will be posted on the web page.
- Problem sets are assigned weekly, and are usually due one week later. They
are due at the beginning of class, and must be turned in either in lecture
or to the instructor's mailbox in ET416.
- No late homework will be accepted.
- Some problems on the problem set will be graded based on effort, but not
on the correctness of the answer. Other problems will be graded based both on
effort and on the knowledge demonstrated. It will not be announced beforehand
which problems fall into which category.
- Graded problem sets will normally be returned one week after the due date,
and will be placed in a folder outside the instructor's office (ET544D).
Solutions will be normally available at the Engineering Copy Center, for a
fee, when the problem sets are returned.
- Your lowest homework score will be dropped at the end of the quarter.
Letter grades are based on the instructor's evaluation of your demonstrated
performance in the course. An overall score in the course will be calculated
using the following weighting:
- Problem Sets (25%)
- Midterm (30%)
- Final (45%)
No absolute scale will be used in assigning letter grades to each overall
score. Instead, the instructor will use his judgment to decide what letter grade
is appropriate for each overall score range. The instructor reserves the right
to override this policy in individual cases where the student has demonstrated
mastery of the material on the final, but this is rare.
All grades (problem sets, exams, and the final course letter grade) will be
available through e3.uci.edu.

Policy on Academic Honesty:
UCI Policy on Academic Honesty
- On problem sets, you are strongly encouraged to work in groups to discuss
your approach to solving each problem, but you must work individually in
progressing from that point toward the solution. You must turn in only
your own work. Use of any solutions from any source other than a student's own
work is considered plagiarism.
Add Drop Policy:
- Attendance at lectures and discussion sections are voluntary. However,
students are responsible for all material covered in all lectures, and the
instructor will not provide notes.
- To be respectful to your classmates, please turn off cell phones when in
the classroom, and avoid discussion that is not part of classroom activity.
