The requirements of this course will consist of participating in lectures, five problem sets, midterm and final. The grading breakdown is as follows:
- Problem Sets: 45%
- Midterm: 20%
- Final: 30%
- Class Participation: 5%
For most of the class we will follow the book:
We will have five problem sets. Problem sets will consist of both theoretical and programming assignments. On some assignments we will recommend that students program in Matlab. However, you are free to do your assignments in any programming language you like as long as you clear it with the TAs first. We will hold a Matlab tutorial during the first week of classes for those who are not familiar with this language.
While you are permitted to discuss the problem sets with fellow class members, each student must write the solutions and code on her / his own. Problem sets are due at the beginning of class on their due date.
Late Homework Policy
In any case of personal problems preventing you from submitting your answers on time, please contact the instructors or TAs as soon as possible (before the problem set is due). If you do not have a good enough reason for a late submission you will be penalized according to the following policy:
- Homework is worth full credit at the beginning of class on the due date.
- It is worth 75% credit for the next 24 hours.
- It is worth 50% credit if submitted more than 24 hours but less than 48 hours after due time.
- It is worth zero credit after that.
Midterm and Final
The midterm will take place during class hours (see schedule). The date and room of the final exam will also be announced later. We will be holding review sessions prior to the midterm and the final. More information will be provided later in the class.
