**GRADING**

Attending lectures is essential for doing well on written exams.
Lectures will
specifically prepare students for the exams. There will be two tests,
each
covering roughly half of the material in the course.

**Test 1 : **35%
(2 hrs) ** **(50% open book, on March 2, 2012)

**Test 2 : **35% (2 hrs) (50% open book, on
April 20, 2012)

**Project: **15% (Matlab/Octave/Mathematica,
about 12 hours effort, Due March 23, 2012)

**Research Project:** 15 %** **
(reading papers/patents, evaluating technology, writing a 10 page
report by a group of 4 students, and a 15 minute group
presentation, on May 4, 2012)

Matlab/Mathematica/Octave programming language should be learned for completing the project. Project is not difficult and requires about 12 hours of effort.

Grades are assigned based on absolute percentage
of total
marks as below.

This policy is subject change.
