Course Policies


The student will be graded on about four homework sets, a possible take home final, and a scribe for at least one lecture. Those students finishing all the required work should expect a grade of at least a high B.


  • Unless we find a TA for this class the homeworks will be graded by the students in the class.
  • Students will be responsible for grading an individual problem from the homework.
  • Student may work in group of up to three but should writeup their own solutions.

Academic Integrity

As a graduate class, we will assume that you understand the issues and do not need an explanation here.
Finally, feel free to contact any member of the course staff to clarify these policies.
