Three projects must be completed during the course, in groups of size no more than three. The projects involve three components: mathematical modeling, computational solution, and presentation.
To develop presentation skills, each group will select one member to deliver their report to the class in a 10 to 15 minutes overhead presentation.
By default, the above scale will be used to assign grades. If necessary, a milder curve may be used.
Your score depends for 20% on homework, 60% on the projects, and 20% on the exams. Excellent performance on projects may replace homework and exams. The final exam is considered as a backup.
