Homework Assignments: There will be 10 assignments during the semester. Assignments will be posted on Blackboard.
All assignments are expected to be prepared electronically with the use of Word or Excel. Assignments will be turned in during class – hand written assignments are acceptable as long as they are legible. Your submission must be your own and entirely your own work-product. Failure to comply will result in Zero points for the assignment and a lower letter of the final grade. The specific due date will be posted on Blackboard when each homework is assigned. Copies of homework solutions will be placed in the Help Room (IEEE SUM) and on Blackboard.
No late empower submission will be accepted after the solutions are made available. All homework assignments shall be submitted in class. Do not submit your homework on blackboard! Grading for each homework assignment will be based on 3 points for procedure (as indicated above), 2 points for clarity, and 15 points for the analysis and solutions. If you have questions concerning your homework, please bring these questions to my attention during class, to the Task in the Help Room, or during my office hours. Prefer that question-and-answer sessions occur in person.
Quizzes: There will be 10 quizzes throughout the semester. The quizzes will be closed book and closed notes and will be individual efforts – no help from other students. The quizzes may cover any material previously, and sometimes currently, covered in class, in homework and/or in the readings assigned. The quizzes can be given anytime during the class and will take approximately 5 -? 10 minutes. There will be no advance warning of a quiz and no make-up quizzes unless arrangements are made prior to class. 25% of the quiz grade will be allocated for attendance.
So even if you cannot answer the question, you will collect 5 points for attending the class and following the quiz procedure (as listed below). If you are absent from class and a quiz is given on the day of your absence, you will receive no points for that quiz. If you leave before the lecture ends on a day a quiz is given, you will not receive any points for that quiz (unless being excused by the instructor beforehand for legitimate reasons). You shall observe strict silence throughout the quiz and strict silence when the quizzes are collected.
Failure to observe silence during this erred may be considered “class disruption” as defined under “Conduct in the Classroom”. Students that choose to discuss the quiz with other students during the quiz or choose to look at notes during a closed note quiz will receive a zero for that quiz; a second occurrence of looking at notes or talking during a quiz will result in discussions with the Assistant Dean of the School of Business. Blackboard: This course includes a Blackboard website at http:// courseware. UK. Du. You will find many documents on the site.
All class notes/ slides and assignments will be posted to Blackboard. Note that Blackboard room time to time will undergo maintenance by SKI and not always be available.
