## HomeworkAssignments must be neat, organized and legible. In plain English: If we cannot read your assignment, you will not get credit for it. Typed assignments are welcome. At the start of each problem, write out a brief description of the problem including given information and what is to be found. Put a box around all final answers. Show your work enough to fully demonstrate your understating and your arrival at your answer. Write on only one side of the paper. Pages must stapled be in order (i.e. following the order in which the problems were assigned).
## GradingYou only have TWO WEEKS to question grading from the time the homework\exam\project is returned. Specificially for exam and project grade questions, students must write up a detailed document (using Word or other word processing tool, not hand-written) describing the question, staple it to the original exam, and give it to the professor.
This will be the final grading scale used for the course. There is no curve. You are not competing against classmates, so help them out if you can! I reserve the right to lower the scale (i.e., make it easier), but I will not raise it.
A: 90+ A-:87-89 B+:85-86 B : 83-84 B-:80-82 C+:77-79 C : 74-76 C-:70-73 D+:68-69 D : 63-67 D-:60-62 F : 59 or below
## In-Class ExpectationsThe following expectations will assist us with the creation of a learning community and a high quality of educational experience. The University of Colorado Classroom Behavior Policy will compliment these expectations: Turn off your cell phones/ don’t text No laptops during lectures Unless approved for taking notes Unless approved for solving in-class problems
Refrain from having disruptive conversations
## Academic IntegrityYou will be asked to complete group homework assignments in this course, but it is also expected that you will abide by The University of Colorado Honor Code at all times. ## Late WorkNo late work will be accepted |
