You can also find the livebook useful. A livebook is a platform that allows users to post questions on specific parts on the text. To access you need to register (it is free to do so).
Homeworks: there will be a total of 5 Homeworks; most require the use of Matlab. Typically the HW is given on a Thursday, and due in class two weeks later. If you turn your homework late, there will be a 2 point penalty per day, with a maximum delay until the next class following the due date (that is, if a HW is due on a Thursday, you have to turn it on the following Tuesday at the latest). Only the best 4 homework scores will count towards your grade.
Exams: There will be two quizzes (2/19/15 and 4/14/15, in class), one midterm (3/12/15, in class), and a final (date and location TBD).
