Several take-home exams. One in-class comprehensive exam at the end of term.
From time to time, open book in-class quizzes will be held. You can open only your own notebook and textbook. No photocopy of books nor notebooks are allowed. The date and topics of a quiz will be announced one week before it will ne held.
One student (principal investigator, PI) selected by the instructor explains other students his/her solution in a group study meeting. If mistakes are discovered, try to create a correct solution jointly. When everyone agrees with the solution, the PI writes the solution on paper with the signatures of all students. If not eveyone agrees, those who disagree with PI should write another solution with their signatures. Everyone who signed the solution will receive the same score. So, make it sure that you check the solution carefully or you mighr get a failing grade along with others.
Each student must carry out assignments by him/herself without consulting to other people.
All homework must be turned in by email. You can scan your solution using a fast scanner(B/W low resolution) in the department office or a slow scanner (Color high resolution) in the SPS room. Ask Jie how to use the fast scanner.
