Lecture Time:††††††††† 9:30-10:45 am, MWF

Attendance:†††††††††††† Attendance of Lectures is mandatory.Students must have reasonable cause to miss a lecture.Lectures missed without reasonable cause will cause a deduction of 5% from the total grade.


Grades:††††††††††††††††† A/B/C/D/F corresponds to 100/90/80/70/60.


Grade Weighting:††† 33.3% Homework, 66.7% exams.


Homework:†††††††††††† Homework is probably the single most important part of the course.Occasionally a student will be able to absorb all the needed information without doing the homework, but this is rare, and it is easy to fool yourself into thinking that you understand how to do a problem.The only way to be sure that you understand is to work the homework. Homework will be accepted late at a cost of 5% per lecture period.


††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† You must state the rationale for any equations or manipulations you do.For example, if you are writing down the equation of continuity, state that this is what you are doing.If you are dividing the equation by r, state this.Neatness and legibility are also factors in the grading of the homework since they make the graderís job much easier.Where appropriate, put a box around your final answer.


††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Please mark your homework with your name, the course number, the due date, and the number of the homework set.For example:
