04.26: Course overview. Last day of classes.
Homework - 30%, Tests (4) - 20%, Quizzes - 10%, Laboratory – 20%, Final exam
(Friday, April 30, 8:00 a.m. -10:30 a.m. in CH301) - 20%.
Homework is CAPA-based. There will be CAPA sets with specified due dates for each
chapter. Since the solutions for CAPA homework become available a few days after the
due date, the due date may not be extended. No CAPA homework will be accepted after
the solutions are released. In addition, a number of paper-based problems will be given.
Tests will evaluate student’s understanding of the discussed material and practice
problem solving. There will be four tests covering chapters 22-25, 26-28, 29-33, and 3437.
Short Quizzes will be given occasionally to measure the one's progress. Laboratory
includes a set of experiments to conduct and writing reports. Laboratory is graded
independently, and it counts as 20% for the course.
Final Exam includes solving a set of problems related to the topics covered in class.

Monitored. Although not graded formally, good attendance may be a positive factor in
some situations.
