Grading Policy
The following grading scale will used in this course:
                         Exam (1), 25%,
                         Final exam, 25%,
                         Homeworks and Labs 20%,
                         Research Papers and Projects %20.
                        Quizzes and class participation %10.

Students are required to attend all classes.  All assignments are due before the start of the class on the due date.  No assignment will be accepted once the solution is discussed in the classroom.   No make-up exams will be given in this course.  If you missed an exam due to an "Extreme circumstances" such as illnesses, death of a relative, or problems of this nature, you have to present documents (e.g. a letter from a doctor, a letter from a hospital, or an obituary from the funeral).  In the such cases, student's final exam's grade will be used for the missed exam.

All assignments, programs, and projects MUST be completed by students individually.  You may discuss the assignments and programs among each other but you have to write/edit programs by YOURSELF.   Please see the ASU Academic Integrity Policy for a description of the woes that befall a transgressor!

Grading Scale
A = 90 to 100
B = 80 to 89
C = 70 to 79
D = 60 to 69
F = Below 60

No incomplete will be given except in extreme circumstances.

Important Note
If you have a question send me e-mail at any time, and I will try to reply as soon as possible.  I encourage all students to communicate with me using e-mail whenever they have questions.  I will set several online office hours at nights and strongly encourage you to take advantage of those hours.  I also encourage you to check the announcements periodically for updates regarding our class, assignments, etc....
