Grading Policy:


You will need to work on the worksheets collaboratively in groups of 3--4. While you are working, I will circulate among to offer individual help. You should stay until you complete the worksheet. The worksheets will be collected at the end of the class and returned back graded to you next class. Only one worksheet from each group will be graded and the whole group gets the same grade so it is essential that you work well with your groupmates. Your lowest two worksheet scores will be dropped. If you have an emergency and need to skip some classes or exams, please contact the emergency dean (300 Turner Student Services Building, 610 East John St., phone: 217-333-0050).

Online Homework:

The online homework is provided through WebAssign online homework system. Webassign is bundles with the textbook if you buy it from Illini bookstore or you can buy a seperate access from Webassign. After you created an account using your university email (, you will need to access the online homework using the class key: for section CD5 (9 am) use uiuc 7466 3302 and for section ED8 (8 am) use uiuc 4695 6377.

Cheating is strictly prohibited and will result in serious consequences. In particular, cheating may result in an "F" for the course and be reported to both the student's college and the Senate Committee on Student Discipline. Using of any outside materials, looking at another student's exam or using cell phones might be consider as a cheating (whether or not you get benefit from it).
