Homework policy
A homework set is due one week from assignment. You may submit it after the due date but 15% of the grade will be deducted for every day after the due date.
Term paper policy
You are encouraged to find a suitable topic as soon as possible. Your work is expected to evolve over the course of the term. I would like to see your progress periodically.

Exam policies
Exam will be close book. Useful formula will be provided.
