**WEIGHTING**: 20% homework, 30% tests/midterm, 30% final exam and 20% class project. When appropriate,
these weights may be altered to the student's benefit to handle substantial improvement near the
end of the course, homework missed due to major illness, etc.

**FINAL EXAM:** (14T) May 13, 1:05-3:05 pm, Randolph 220

**TESTS/MIDTERM:** Typically there are three tests or one-midterm exam. Absence during a test will result in
a grade of zero. Makeup tests will be given only where a very serious documented
reason exists for absence.

**HOMEWORK:** Homework problems are due once a week, one week after they
are assigned. Assignments will be given in class. No homework will be accepted
late for any reason whatsoever. Each assignment will be given a percentage grade
based on equal weight for each problem in the assignment. If you fail to hand in
more than one assignment due to major illness or other
unusual circumstance, please provide a note of explanation and attach any
available supporting documentation. Please leave flat and staple upper left
corner. Put your name in the upper right corner, the assignment number and date
in the upper left corner.

**CLASS PROJECT:** The class project will consist of a written report
on some topic dealing with wave propagation in solids. The subject is completely up to the
student and can deviate significantly from the course outline. Topic should be choosen, with
the instructor's approval, ** due mid-March, 2009**.

**HONOR CODE:** The Virginia Tech Honor code applies to all homework
and exams, and no form of dishonesty will be tolerated by the instructor or the students.
If a serious attempt to work a homework problem is unsuccessful, then help may be
sought from another student, including those currently in the course. But this
help must be limited to the minimum necessary to allow further progress. Copying
of another students work, including work from old notes, or permitting your work
to be copied, is considered a serious breach of the honor code.
