you need to download the instructions for each question. This folder consists of an excel
file having two sheets – Problem and Instructions. You’ll need to work on the problem
in this excel file only, and then submit your answers. If you work in a different excel file
than this, your answers won’t get auto-graded by the software.
These assignments require Office 2013/2016 or newer version installed in your laptop.
Teaching Videos: As this class will be held remotely, there is no face-to-face interaction.
This course will be taught asynchronously through recorded videos. These videos will
be posted on Canvas on weekly basis. Be sure to learn the topics by watching these
videos and stay updated with the course.

Please post your course related non-personal questions in these forums and help the
fellow students with their queries.
Email: For any other course related queries, please email and ask your TA first; due to a
large volume of emails I may not be able to reply promptly to your email.
Exams: There are two exams for this course: midterm and non-cumulative final. These
exams will be held online on Pearson Mylab on the scheduled days. There will be no
makeup exams. In case you are unable to take a scheduled exam due to some

Academic Dishonesty: The minimum academic penalty for cheating on a homework
assignment or exam is a zero grade for the assignment or exam in question and the
maximum academic penalty will be a failing grade for the course. Additional
administrative penalties may be imposed by the university. I will not hesitate to report
