### Coverage

We will cover (in full or partially) chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9.

**Note:**Chapters 5 and 6 will be covered (if at all) at the very end of the course.

### Tests and Marking Scheme

#### Tests

(all sections)**Test 1**February 13 (Wednesday), 20:30—21:15, EX 200**MidTerm**March 6 (Wednesday), 20:00—21:30, EX 200**Test 2**March 27 (Wednesday), 20:30—21:15, EX 200

#### Quizzes

There also will be 4—5 short

**quizzes**from the list of Assigned Exercises. Quizzes will be given without advance warning:**Surprise, surprise, we have quiz today!**Quizzes include only problems from the assignments.#### Missing work

There will be no make up (even) for a legitimately missing work, but the remainder will count heavier.

**Loss of work must be reported the day of the distribution of the respective work**.#### Final mark

(Only for those who legitimately missed less than 50% of the term marks; term grade will not be assigned to other students)

Your

**Term**and**Final**grades will be computed as follows: \begin{gather} FG= 0.6 \cdot \max\{TG ; FE \} + 0.4 \cdot \min\{TG ; FE\} \tag{Final Grade}\qquad\qquad\\[3pt] TG=\min \{0.4 \cdot MT + 0.2 \cdot T_1 + 0.2 \cdot T_2 + 0.2\cdot Q +B ; 100\}\qquad\qquad \tag{Term Grade} \end{gather} where $TG$, $MT$ and $FE$ are your Term Grade, Midterm and the Final exams marks, $T_1$ and $T_2$ are your preparatory tests marks, $Q$ is the total of your quiz marks, and $B=\min\{B_{\text{class}}+B_{\text{web}},6\}$, where $B_{\text{class}}=0, \ldots, 4$ and $B_{\text{web}}=0 , \ldots , 4$ are the bonus points for the activity in the class and, respectively, contributions to the forum, assigned by instructors.#### Note

Please note that

**All administrative questions**, including marks, early sittings, doctor notes are handled by course coordinator Professor Pierre Milman only during his office hours.**Never**leave notes in instructor's mailboxes or under the doors.**All technical questions**concerning forum/web pages are handled by Professor Victor Ivrii.
