    Grading Policy
    The course contains a combination of concepts and ideas. To understand the material means to be able to apply it in answering questions supplying your answers with clear, mathematically correct explanations. At the end of the day, your grade will reflect your ability to do that. Evaluation scheme:

  • Final exam will take place on Monday, May 7, 9:45 - 11:45 and count for 30% of the final grade. The exam is cumulative (it covers all the material).
