Final Exam: 35% (Jun 3 - Jun 3)
Written Report: 35% (May 29)
Students may take this course either Pass/Fail or for a letter grade. See the second page of the course syllabus for further preliminary information on the exam policies and the requirements for the written report. Additional information will be provided as the exam and report due dates approach.
In light of the overwhelming student response on favor of recorded lectures, this course will be held in the New Media Classroom (NMC) and the lectures recorded to enable you to view them at your leisure.
To minimize the temptation of trying to absorb all of the course content in the last days of the term, you are required to either attend or view all but four lectures within the week they are delivered. Specifically, you are required to send an email message confirming that you watched the recording or attended lectures for the week by Sunday evening. For every lecture beyond four that you miss, your course grade will be penalized by 1/6 of a letter grade (e.g. one excess missed lecture may move you from a B+ to a B, two would definitely move you from a B+ to a B).
All recorded lectures are available here. Both windows and mac based computers can be used for viewing. Adobe pdf versions of the electronically recorded notes are available here. Selected powerpoint supplements to lectures and handouts are posted below.
