office: MSB 222
office hours: Monday, Wednesday -- 2:00-3:30pm

HW: read the assigned sections, including examples, and do the suggested exercises. Ask questions in class.

Grading policy: there will be 5 tests in class, one after each chapter. Each chapter test contributes 20% for the final grade. Voluntary projects can contribute up to 20% of the final grade. The final exam can replace up to two chapter tests. When the final grade is computed, the lowest scores are not included. HW is not graded.
