Assignments submitted through e-mail or fax, in photocopied forms will not be accepted. There will be no credit given for late responses to assignments.
  2. There will be two equally-weighted close-book exams. If a student must miss an exam or a lecture due to illness or other extenuating circumstance, the instructor must be notified prior to the time of the examination or lecture.
  3. Attendance at each lecture is required.
  4. Receiving or providing unauthorized assistance on examinations is prohibited, and reporting any violations observed is required. Additionally, the use of homework solutions completed by others (in either this semester or a previous semester) in preparing an assignment is not allowed. You are encouraged to discuss homework assignments with other students, but you must do all of your own work (writing, spreadsheets, graphs, tables, etc.) Information on academic ethics can be found at Rutgers University Policy on Academic Integrity.
