The Hmwks together count for 1/5th of the Final grade. The Two Midterms count for 1/5th of the grade each - that is 3/5ths of the final grade and the remaining 2/5th is the final.
Start early - homeworks are long. Every problem on the hmwk counts for 4 points irrespective of difficulty level.
The hmwks are due on the specified day in class. You get 5 No-penalty late days. For every late day over the 5 late days, you will lose 1/10th of the hmwk value - unless you have spoken to me before hand about late hmwks.
Note: We will drop one hmwk score(the least score) for final grade calculation and take into account only the remaining ones. (which means you are free to not submit a hmwk and not be penalised in any way).
Extra Credit:For every homework that is written in Latex, you will receive 4 points extra. Click here for a latex intro borrowed from Prof.Rocco's class.
There will be two Midterms and a Final. The midterms will each be for 100 points and the Final 200 points.
