Course Material:

Lecture-wise notes of all lectures, assignments, practice problems with Hints/solutions and course plan will be  available on this course web site:
Some proofs in the lecture notes and some problems in the Practice Problems are marked (*). Such proofs and problems will not be asked in the exams and Quizzes.

Hard copies of the lecture notes will be available to the students to make copies.

Tutorial  class and office hours
Tutorial  classes and office hours are primarily meant for problem solving and discussion on the material covered in the lectures. The assignment problems  will be discussed in the problem solving classes (Tutorial classes).   Practice problems given on the web site and the exercises given in the text book are usually not discussed in the tutorial classes and the students are expected to solve these problems. However, the students can approach the tutors or the instructor if they have any difficulty in solving such problems.

Evaluation plan

There will be two quizzes. Each one will be of 20 minutes duration and 15 marks. There will be one mid-semester examination which will be of 2 hours duration and 70 marks. End Semester Examination will be of 3 hours duration and 100 marks. There will be no make-up for mid semester exam or Quizzes. However, a student who is going to miss the mid semester exam due to illness or some other valid reason should contact the instructor in-charge before the exam (or after the exam in case of medical reasons).
