Computing : MATLAB will be used in recitations. For most topics, R codes will also be covered in
lectures. However, homeworks should be submitted in MATLAB.

Do’s and Don’ts:

You are expected to attend all classes and exams.

No matter what the situation is, I have ZERO tolerance for plagiarizing (cheating). If one
chooses to copy others’ work, s\he chooses grade over learning and is unfair to her\his
classmates. There will be legal consequences.

Late homeworks will not be accepted.
