and (in most cases)
encouraged. EXCEPT WHERE OTHERWISE INDICATED, group assignments
may be handed in. Assignments are
submitted by placing them in the Assignment Box to be
found next to the elevators, North Ross 5th Floor. My

|Graded Assignments||various dates (see above)||15%|
|Class Tests||October 19, November 23||30%|
|Final Exam||Examination Period||55% |
Alternate Grading Scheme: Assignments 15%, Class Tests
55%, Final Exam 30%.
The scheme which gives the higher grade will be
used in each case.
Note: There will be no makeups for missed tests. If
you miss a test and provide a certificate indicating clearly that you
were unable to write the test for reasons beyond your personal
control, the weight of the test will be transferred to the final
exam. Otherwise, the mark for the missed test will be 0.
The last date to drop the course without academic penalty is November 9. It is extremely important to realistically assess your course performance prior to this date.
Test 1: October 19
Test 2: November 23
