Lectures: Instructions will be a mix of board and PowerPoint presentations with a clicker
(TurningPoint) questions or other in-class activities.

Homework: Homework assignments comprising of 5 to 6 problems will be given weekly through

WileyPLUS. Students have an unlimited number of attempts for each problem to submit the correct
answer. Be sure to submit answers in the correct units and significant digits. Each student will be
assigned the same problem but with different numerical parameters, hence, students have to solve
their own version of the problem. Students will be required to submit hard-copies of their
homework solutions from which randomly few copies will be cross-checked with WileyPLUS
response. Homeworks will be due at 1:00 pm on WileyPLUS on the due date (see the list of due
dates below) and students have to turn-in their solutions in the class on the due date. Failing to
submit hard-copy of solutions or any mismatch between the answers on WileyPLUS and submitted
solutions will result in zero in that assignment. Late submissions will not be accepted. There is no
make-up option for missed homework.

Class Participation and Attendance: Multiple basic conceptual questions will be asked in each
class session and responses will be recorded either using clicker (TurningPoint app) or on paper.
Make sure to sign up on TurningPoint using your GT username. It is encouraged to read previous
classes’ notes and text related to the topic to be taught. Attendance will also be recorded using a
clicker. To earn the class participation credit, you must attend all sessions (with up to 2 unexcused
absences). Exceeding 2 unexcused absences will result in a 0 in class participation for the course.

Exams: Midterms and finals will be closed-book in-class exams. Students will be allowed to bring
one page (8-1/2” by 11”, both sides) handwritten notes.

Grading: All students must take each exam, including the comprehensive final exam. The lowest
homework score for each student will be dropped when computing grades. Letter grades are
assigned such that: 90-100=A, 80-89=B, 70-79=C, 60-69=D, <60=F. Using the weights indicated
above, each student should be able to calculate their grade at any time. If your average rounds off
to the next higher grade, you will get the higher grade. So a 79.6 will get you a B (with a 79.3
average, expect a C).
