My Weekly Schedule


Exercises/Tutorials 30%
Three quizzes 15%
Lab notebook 5%
Final project 50%

The exercises/tutorials are crucial to avoid a nasty crunch on the day the final project is due. The quizzes will be open note (but closed computer) quizzes; no printouts will be permitted. If you haven't written stuff down in your notebook, haven't done the exercises and worksheets, and can't remember, then you're fresh out of luck.
