Quiz:
•    There will be a Quiz every day at the beginning of the class.
•    Duration is 10 minutes.
•    The topic will be the lesson of the previous class.
•    Type of questions will be multiple choice with work to show for mathematical problems.
•    There will be no make up for the quiz.
•    There will be no quiz on the days after the midterm exams.
Home Work:
•    There will be one HW each week.
•    You have to upload the HW in the blackboard at the assigned area.
•    Duration – one week.
•    There will be no late submission (except for special situations, in that case talk to me.)
Attendance:
•    I’ll collect the attendance from the quiz.  
•    The attendance will include the presence and participation in the recitation as well.
Exams:
•    There will be two midterm exams
•    For the date and syllabus for each of the midterm exam, please check the table below.
•    The midterm exams will take place during the recitation hours.
Recitation:
•    The recitation classes will be used as mentoring sessions, where you will be solving assigned problems.
•    Also we will discuss questions that you will have.
Electronic Devices:
•    Use of Cell Phone is strictly prohibited in the class, regardless of the reason. Please keep them in silence and inside your pocket/bag. It should not be displayed under any circumstance.
•    No Laptop either. Take notes on papers; that is more useful. If you use smart notebook it must be some kind of iPad.
•    If you fail to refrain yourself from the use of these devices, I will help you by keeping them on the front desk. You can collect them after the class.
•    Keep a scientific calculator with you- its mandatory. You will need it in the class.
