Contact Information

Generally, the best way to contact me is by e-mail. I try to answer e-mails within 1-2 working days. Often it is within the same day but if you send me an e-mail on Friday or Saturday, don't expect to get a quick response.

In case of an emergency, you may call the DCS main office at 978-6025 or my office at 978-8700.
note that my office phone is not a private phone. So use it only if it is really an emergency case.

Grading Scheme

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order to pass the course, you must achieve a mark of at least 40% on the final examination. In other words, you will automatically fail the course if your mark on the final exam is less than 40% irrespective of your computed final mark.

Also, for any problem in an assignment or term test (but not for the final exam), you will receive 20% of the mark for that problem if you only write "I don't know how to answer to this question", and nothing else !!
