Midterm Exam:
Midterm exam will take place either on March 15th or March 20th. Before the midterm exam we will have one review class.
In every class you will be given homework assignments with the due date. Late homework submissions are not accepted. If you missed a class you need to submit it the very next time you come to class. You can get somebody's help but keep in mind that you need to understand what you are doing, since on the midterm exam you will be on your own.
