CLASS PARTICIPATION/ATTENDANCE POLICY: Students are also expected to read assigned materials, prepare for, and participate in class discussion.

ASSIGNMENTS Students are required to turn in 3 problem sets during the semester. Due dates are shown on the assignment outline below. The problem sets are due at the beginning of the class on the date shown. Late problem sets will not be accepted under any circumstances. Problem sets are considered late after they have been collected in class. Students are strongly encouraged, but not required, to work on these assignments in small groups. If working in groups, turn in one paper per group with all contributing student’s names on the paper. Please note that material from the problem sets may be included on the exams. Working in groups does not mitigate responsibility for learning the material. COURSE DATA FILES Course related material will be posted in the course data files on the ASM server.
