There are two lectures per week. In addition there is a two-hour lab. Session for problems, questions, reviews, …etc.
Homework and Testing Policies:
University and College policies on homework and examinations will be strictly enforced. Students are to work independently on home works and tests. They are to be handed in on time. No late home works will be accepted. Biweekly home works are given and are due a week later.
Introduction and some simple discussions.
