Notes:
·
Throughout the semester NİNOVA
education portal will be used.
·
In order to
take the final exam you should
attend at least 70% of the lectures, and also
your midterm grade average should
be at least 30. (This is a strict rule. No exceptions!)
·
Attendance will be checked every lecture. Student arrive late 15 minutes or more will
not be allowed to sign the list.
Students leave early will be counted
as “absent” from lecture.
·
Independent of the class grade
average, students who obtain below
35 will receive only FF, for those
who obtained below 80 can not receive AA grade.
·
In this course,
we encourage students to work
together, even on homeworks
and projects. But it is expected that each
student should write his/her homeworks himself/herself. It is undesirable to have similar or
identical homeworks. Similar
homeworks that are indication of copying will not be tolerated and these homeworks will not be graded.
