Course Policy:

• Submission of  70%  of the home assignments is obligatory. For each missing assignment below 70% one point will be reduced from the final grade. For each extra assignment beyond 85% one point will be added to the final grade.
• Submit your assignments to mailbox #8, building 54 (Physics).
• ie. full assignment submission will add 2 points to the final grade. No submission of assignments will reduce 8 point from your final grade.
• The final grade of the course will be calculated as following: Final exam grade + homework grade (can be negative!)
• Home assignments will be partially checked.
• HW submission will not be accepted beyond deadline. For special cases, such as army reserve service, hospitalization etc. please contact your teaching assistant as soon as possible.
• Students are responsible to check their submissions regularly.
