What is the grading policy of the course?
- About 6 assignments
- Teams of 2 (strict!)
Final grade will be calculated as follow:
FINAL_GRADE = HW_WEIGHT * HW_GRADE + (1-HW_WEIGHT)*EXAM_GRADE
HW_GRADE is the average of the HW assignments.
HW_WEIGHT will normally be 0.2 (20%), however, if the need will arise, we will adjust the homework weight rather than use a "factor" to normalize the grades. We believe that using the homework grades is more fair than using a meaningless factor. (But, again, under normal circumstances, it'll just be 20%.)
Can I transfer HW grade from previous semester?
|No, there will be no transferring of HW grades.|
However, if you passed the course in a previous semester you can get a "פטור" from the HW assignments and your final grade will be your exam grade.
If you're interested in this option please contact the TA in charge.
What is the policy on late submission of HW?
|Late submission of up to 72 hours will have a penalty of 5 points.|
We will not accept submissions after 72 hours.
Late submission of dry HW must contain a cover page with the exact date and hour of the submission.
Can you publish the assignments schedule?
|Sure, you can find the schedule here:|
I have [...], can I get a postponement on the HW assignment?
|Please contact the TA in charge of the assignment ASAP and state your reasons. |
The request will be considered.
