Course Organization

The course will include regular homework assignments. Unless otherwise specified, assignments are due by end of day on the due date. (End of day is defined by when the Engineering Office is locked) There will be no credit given for late assignments (without an excused absence)—turn in as much as you can.

Reading assignments should be completed before the lecture covering the material. Not all reading material will be covered in the lectures, but you will be responsible for the material on homework and exams. There will be an in class activity/quiz/homework over the reading and lecture. This activity will count for both a homework assignment and an attendance point.
