Therefore, no late homework can be accepted, except for those with extensions granted in advance (see first item above). Be professional, e.g., use engineering graph paper, write neatly, write on one side of page only, and show all work. Please make sure to prepare well in advance so that you can ask questions during class, tutorials, or office hours.

Quiz/Online Test:
The student has to give answers for the multiple choice questions.
