Homework and Problem Sessions:  Homework problems will be posted on the web page. While these will not be collected, you should take them seriously and solve them. There will be regular problem sessions, centered on the homework.


Attendance: Attendance will be not be taken for lectures. But we STRONGLY recommend regular attendance to both lectures and PS sections. There will be a simple one question quizz during each PS section. The grades for these quizzes will be considered as bonus points: up to 10 BONUS points will be added to the final grade according to performance in PS quizzes. The grading will be as follows: 1 point (for writing your name), 2 points (for making an effort at a solution), 3 points (for a correct solution). The question will be from the previous PS sessions.


Study guideline: In order to benefit from the course and perform well on the exams, you need to spend three hours on average studying on your own for every class lecture. It is essential that you read your book and your notes, and work through the assigned exercises as a minimum. The more exercises you solve, the better your understanding of the material will be. Practice solving exercises quickly by timing yourself. Avoid as much as possible looking up the solution until after you have exerted significant effort in trying to solve the exercises.


Evaluation: Your progress will be evaluated according to your performance in two midterm exams and a final exam. Their contribution to your total grade will be as follows: Midterm exams 30% each and the final exam 40%.


The midterm exams will take place outside class hours. Exam dates will be determined by the Registrar Office. All the information regarding to the exam dates and places will be announced on the web page of the course. Calculators will not be allowed in the exams.


Passing Grade: The passing grade (D) is at least 40 out of 100.


Make-up Exam: There will be only 1 common make-up exam for a missed exam (midterm or final) with an excuse (health report, etc.) at the end of the semester, after the final exam. It will include all the material covered throughout the semester (even if it may be a make-up for the midterm).


Academic Integrity: Students are expected to maintain their academic integrity. Academic dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated and punished as described in the "academic integrity" section of the Koç University catalog p.36. A detailed definition of academic dishonesty is also provided in the catalog.
