Expected Outcomes

There will be a take-home mid-term exam due Tuesday October 27 at 5pm and a closed-book in-class final exam on Thursday December 17 from 3:15-5:15pm. Each exam is worth 25% of your final grade.

Homework will be assigned weekly during the semester. Late homework is accepted at a 20% penalty per day (Mon-Fri). This will make up 25% of your final grade.

You will have at least one week to prepare your presentation. You will be graded on the clarity of your presentation and the quality of your answers to questions. This will make up 25% of your final grade.
