15-453 Grading and Policies
  • Homework, 45%
  • Final Exam, 25%;
  • Midterm Exam, 25%;
  • Class Participation, 5%.
  • Attendance is required.
Homework: Homework is due one week after it is assigned. Late homework loses 10 percentage points (one letter grade) per day. Homework will not be accepted after the solutions are posted. Each student must do their own work and hand in their own homework individually. Collaboration is allowed, but any references used (including books, articles, websites, and other people), other than the course materials, must be listed.

Cheating: It can be surprisingly easy to detect when students are not doing their own work.  Working with others on the assignments does not mean dividing the problems among you, and then swapping answers.
