Policies Attendance is mandatory. You will be banned from the final exam if you miss 8 classes or more. You are responsible for any material mentioned in class whether from the textbook or not. This material involves a lot of details; therefore, make sure to study it day by day. It is very highly recommended that you take the lab with the course. Make sure to refer regularly to the data sheets.
Policies There will be four informal quizzes. Expect a quiz almost every three weeks Exams and quizzes are closed notes and books Focus in the exams and quizzes will be on conceptual understanding and problem solving There are no make ups for the exams and quizzes. So don’t be absent and don’t ask ! Course material is not entirely from the textbook.
