There is a recitation class each Wednesday, see your schedule. For questions regarding recitation classes contact your recitation class instructor.


Homeworks will be collected every Monday and Wednesday at beginning of the class. Some of the homeworks will be graded. Late homeworks will not be accepted. Attendance and doing homework assignments are very important for your success in this class.

Quizzes and Tests:

Quizzes are held on Wednesdays in recitation classes. There are two in class midterm exams and a comprehensive final exam. Calculators, books and notes are not allowed during the quizzes and exams.

Grading Policy:

Your course grade will be determined as follows: 10% from homeworks, 20% from quizzes, 20% from each mid-term exam and 30% from the final exam.

Make-up Policy:

There will be no make-up exams and make-up quizzes except in extreme circumstances (such as: death in immediate family, military obligation, etc.) at the discretion of the instructor. The instructor has to be informed IN ADVANCE by e-mail. You will be asked to provide proper documentation.


Class attendance is expected and we will "spot check" attendance throughout the semester. I may deduct up to 3% of your grade if you miss more than three of those random checks.

If you have questions, please contact Min Chen.
