We will use the computer for optimization and simulation problems, either matlab or S-plus are recommended.
|There will be six homeworks|
|and four labs||40%|
|(the worst one will be dropped in the average)|
|There will be one midterm||20 %|
|(Open Book, bring calculators)|
|There will be one final||40 %|
|(Open book/ open notes.) -|
The final will be at the exam period fixed by the administration to be , no makeup, please do not take this course if you have a conflict.
Class attendanceMost of the exam questions will be related to problems mentioned in class, your grade will have a high probability of being correlated to your class attendance.
Do not give them in late because the solutions will be posted on the web, so there will be NO credit for late homeworks. If you are having trouble with a lecture or a homework, come to office hours as soon as possible, do not wait until exam time to catch up, from our experience, any trouble students have with this class is due to backlog, that is why we have weekly quizzes. If you cannot do all of a problem, you should still hand in what you have done.
Try other problems in the textbook. The problems given on the problem sheets are only a few of the infinitely many problems that exist! And there are many good problems in the textbook from which you will learn alot. It is by no means expected that you will do every problem in the text; this course only goes for a quarter, not a decade. However, in preparing for exams in this subject, you will find it useful to be comfortable solving various problems. The course is mostly a problem solving one, not a technical one.
Graded homeowrks are to be found in the stat60 cubby holes on the second floor of Sequoia Hall, slightly further than the computer room on your left.
