Exams and grades. Do not miss the exams. There will be three midterm exams at the regular class time:

The average of the two highest-score midterm exams will count as 25%, the homework 25%, the project 20%, and the final exam 30%. One lowest midterm exam and two lowest homework assignments will be dropped at the end of the semester to allow for emergency situations. Do not miss classes, exams or homework. If you miss seven or more classes during the semester (counting regular classes, midterms, and the final exam), a failing grade will be assigned at the end of the course regardless of performance during the semester. To see your current score for the class, click on the "Score Reports" link on the left in, then enter your password. The expression like ex1:85/100 means that your score for exam 1 was 85 out of 100. If a curve is used for this exam, the expression like ex1:85<86/100 will mean that your score after the curve is 86. The scores between 80 and 90 correspond to B-, B, B+, therefore the score 86 corresponds to the grade B. The dropped assignments and exams will be marked with "**" at the end of the semester.

The project. The students will be randomly split into groups to work on a project, to write a report, and to present it to the class in the second half of the semester. Select the topic of your project early, and start working on it now. Take initiative, discuss it with me and others, if you have any questions. The main requirements for the project:
