IE 466 Syllabus


Assignments are assigned on Blackboard at least a week in advance o f the due date, and are due by 12pm on the due date. You may submit your assignment electronically on Blackboard or in person as a hard copy at the lectur e. An as- signment turned in by someone else or a late assignment will not be accepted. Students with documented medical reasons may be excused. The homework so- lutions will be posted on Blackboard on the due date or shortly after . Graded assignments will be returned in class the following week. Collaboration with other students is encouraged: you may discuss with your classmat es possible ap- proaches to solving the problems in the assignment, but each student should write her/his solution independently. Computer use (Excel) will be neces- sary for certain assignments.


Assignments, midterms and final exams are graded numerically. The course grade will be determined as follows:

Homework and class participation

The assignments and class participation grade is evaluated based on class atten- dance, class participation and the average of all assignment grades except the lowest one.
