There will be tests as shown in the course outline.
These may be in-class or take-home, open-book or closed-book. I may
allow you to drop one of the grades. The final exam will be at the time
listed in the class schedule. There will be no exemptions.
On computer homework: Computer homework involves more than just
writing the program and testing it. All computer output that is handed
in must be accompanied by an explanation of the results. (In
particular, pay attention to how roundoff error may affect the results,
and explain why you think the program is correct, and, if applicable,
why certain results surprise you.) Furthermore, you are expected to
follow a good programming style; I will give pointers in class and if
you consult me. Feel free to use computing equipment for any problems
that involve a large amount of computation.
