Instructor: Steve Lindemann (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Lecture Room: 241El
Laboratory Room: 234 EL
Homework: Homework problems are available via Mallard on the Internet and graded immediately by the computer. Problems may be worked up to ten times without penalty and highest grade is recorded (100pts.max/problem ). There is a 50 pt. penalty for problems submitted after the due date, and a 10 pt. penalty for each attempt after the tenth. Homeworks are due at 11:59pm on the date specified.
The Mallard page for this course can be found here.
Exams: There will be three 1-hour exams given. Exams will be held in the evening, from 7-8pm, and are in the same room as the lectures. Tentatively, these exams are scheduled for:
Final Exam: The final exam will be held on Thursday, August 5, at 7:00pm.
Lab: experiments (30%), design challenge (15%), effort (5%)
Lecture: exams (20%), final exam (20%), homework (10%)
Final grades are based on combined lecture and lab performance. No plus or minus letter grades are given. A grade of "F" will be given to anyone who does not score at least 50% in both the lecture and the lab.
