# Algebra and Computation (2017-I)

(Mon 1130 — 1300) & (Fri 1400 — 1530) @ A 201

## Grading

- Each student would be required to scribe at least one lecture. You get additional score for correcting typos of other lectures etc. The scribing would count towards 10% of the final evaluation.
- There would be about 3-4 assignments and these would carry 45% towards the final evaluation.
- There would be an end-semester exam (most likely a take-home exam) the would carry 45% towards the final evaluation.
