Corrected homework with solutions will be returned the week after it was collected on Fridays in recitation.

Homework will be graded on a coarse scale with 4 levels of grade:

- 3) All or nearly all correct
- 2) Approximately half correct
- 1) Mostly incorrect
- 0) Late or not submitted

However, total homework grades will be based on the best nine out of
eleven individual homework grades. Thus, two homework assignments may
be missed without a grading penalty. Note that *Homework 11 is the
pre-lab exercise for Lab 4, and must be completed before going to the
laboratory.*

Because the labs are an essential and integral part of the subject,
*ALL LABS MUST BE COMPLETED BY THE END OF THIS TERM. PERSONS WHO FAIL
TO COMPLETE THE FOUR LABS WILL RECEIVE A GRADE OF F (not I ). *

You should find a lab partner to work with for your laboratory.

- 15% Homework
- 15% Laboratories
- 35% Evening one-hour quizzes (two together)
- 35% Final Exam

In a previous offering of this subject a bit more than half of the final letter grades were A or B. However, the staff has no preconceived grade distribution, and it would be a pleasure to end up in May with a larger fraction of high grades.

This subject has been designed so that lectures, recitations, tutorials, homework and labs are integral and essential parts of the learning process. Although there is no specific reward for participation, there is a clearly defined penalty for not participating. Students who consistently miss recitations, tutorials, homework or labs will not benefit from the grading discussions.
