available on the net at the address http://www2.cscamm.umd.edu/~jabin/Schedule_401.html

- Homework : There
will be homework assignments (mostly biweekly) and 2 short numerical projects to complete. The lowest
homework grade will be dropped. No late homework will be accepted (but

- Final exam : Thursday May 17th, 1:30-3:30 pm.
- Grades : you can
contest a grade for a homework or test up to 2 weeks after the day the
results were given to the students (even if you were not present on
that day).

- Attendance/absence : Students are expected to attend all classes, except for illnesses, religious observances or compelling circumstances beyond the student's control. They are responsible for the material covered in class, whether they attend or not. They are also responsible for the announcements made during class which may include changes in the syllabus. Please inform me within 2 weeks of the start of the course of problems with the schedule of homework assignments, tests or exams.
- Grading : 20% for homeworks, 20% for numerical projects, 10% for quizzes, 15% for 1st test, 15% for 2nd test, 20% for final exam. For each homework assignment, only a random selection of exercises will be graded. Letter grades will be based on the accumulated points at the end of the semester, according to the following scheme: 90%-A; 80%-B; 70%-C; 50%-D; less than 50%-F.
- Disabilities : Please inform me immediately If you need accommodations because of a disability.
- Expectations
: Students are expected to
understand some important, basic concepts of linear algebra. This
implies both a good knowledge of the theory and the ability to use it
to solve practical problems or implement the methods numerically.

- Communication : Informations about the course will be given during class. In specific cases (unexpected class cancellations), students will be contacted by e-mail.
- Academic integrity : The University of Maryland, College Park has a nationally recognized Code of Academic Integrity, administered by the Student Honor Council. This Code sets standards for academic integrity at Maryland for all undergraduate and graduate students. As a student you are responsible for upholding these standards for this course. It is very important for you to be aware of the consequences of cheating, fabrication, facilitation, and plagiarism. For more information on the Code of Academic Integrity or the Student Honor Council, please visit www.shc.umd.edu. To further exhibit your commitment to academic integrity, remember to sign the Honor Pledge on all examinations and assignments: "I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized assistance on this examination (assignment)."
- Some examples about academic integrity : It is all right for students to discuss between them about the homework assignments. It is similarly permitted to look for tips on the internet, from other students or other resources. It is wrong to simply copy the solution to a homework exercise from any student, a book, a web page or any other source.
