Team Approach You will work in a team of three. Turn in one paper for each team. Team paper need to be typed in MS WORD with proper format.
Team Approach You need to state clearly on the front page the percentage of contributions of each team member. This approach is intended for you to have discussions over the HW. Do not take turn to do HW.
Homework You are not allowed to discuss your HW with anyone (except your team parnters and the instructor). Discussing or copying homework is considered as an act of academic dishonesty. Your only references are the textbooks and lecture notes. Do not use other references such as books, WIKI, and other web resources.
Homework You must show all of your work − a correct answer with no justification will also be worth NO credit. When explanations are called for on the homework, you should respond in complete sentences with proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation.
Homework Staple your Homework. Points will be taken off if you fail to do so. Homework is due at the beginning of the class. Absolutely no late homework. Excuses such “the printer is not working” will not be accepted.
Homework Homework assignments are graded selectively. All solutions will be posted. If you repeat this class with me to get a better grade, your HW will not be counted. Do not share your solutions with anyone.
Team Presentation Each team will do a group presentation. All team members are required to present materials. Each team will email me its preferences on the topic to me by tomorrow noon. Presentation outlines are posted on the course webpage.

Make-Up Policies If a student has a documented conflict that will prevent him or her from taking an exam at the scheduled time, he/she must arrange IN ADVANCE with the instructor to take the exam early.
Make-Up Policies Makeups are NOT AUTOMATIC. Do NOT assume that because you miss an exam that you will get to make it up. A makeup exam must be APPROVED by me. Lying to avoid taking an exam is considered as an act of academic dishonesty.
