Q:  What help can I get on my homework without it being called cheating?
A:   See Academic Integrity policy.

Q:  (a) I don't do well on homework because it takes time for me to learn material. or (b)  I had a bad day on the midterm.
       What can I do?
A:  If your homework (resp. midterm) -- but not both -- is low compared to your final and your midterm (resp. homework), I will downgrade its percentage in your grade.  I normally do not make adjustments for a bad final exam.

  I did poorly on (or missed) a homework assignment.  What can I do?
A:  The lowest homework will be dropped. 

Q:  Will I be tested on MatLab?
A:   There is an exam in the lab.  You will not be tested on the midterm or final.
