Grading for this course is consisted of two components:

– Final Research Project, including presentation and the research paper – 60%

This is an important course and I would like to see everyone do well in the class. If you have questions or concerns about the reading assignments or the format of the final research project, please feel free to contact me through email. People know me as very responsive. If I am not replying, that means I am probably in a class, in a meeting, or in a conference somewhere.

I am here to help you learn the materials and get an excellent grade at the same time. You would get an excellent grade at the same time. You would get out whatever efforts you put in.
