to discuss homework. individuals or teams may submit the exercises for extra credit (~5%). The recorder prepares the final solution. Rotate these roles for every homework. The homework will be done in teams of three or four students that the instructor will assign. Submit the assignment and review the returned homework. Optional exercises will be given to reinforce lecture material. To facilitate group work and promote individual accountability. 3. please contact the instructor early in the semester so that your learning needs may be appropriately met. The groups will be reshuffled if a majority of students would like to. students may form „metateams‟. Do the required individual preparation. and the ratings will be factored into the individual grades. Meet and work.
