    The daily homework assignment will consist of a reading assignment and a problem assignment. One or two problems of the daily problem assignment have to be completed online via the eCompanion of the course at The time frame for this completion begins after the lecture in which the problem was assigned, and ends one hour before the next lecture. The homework problems and the textbook examples that appear in the reading assignment form the basis for the test problems.
    Every week, usually on Thursday, there will be a short quiz. No make-up quizzes will be offered. However, the two lowest quiz grades will be dropped.
