The lectures provide the basic knowledge and the assigned problems build on that knowledge. Completion of these assignments is an absolute minimum for the student to gain an understanding of the subject matter. Assignments will be reviewed in class.
Students are responsible for all materials for the exams, whether or not it is covered in class. Exams will be a combination of all types of questions based on all sources, and students may be required to integrate theoretical concepts from the text to substantiate their arguments.
No make-up tests or make-up assignments are allowed in this course.
