Information
The textbook for this course is: Thomas S. Ferguson, Game Theory, Second Edition, 2014
Student's cumulative average will be computed by taking the maximum of these two grading schemes:
 10% Homework, 25% Midterm I, 25% Midterm II, 40% Final Exam
 10% Homework, 30% maximum of Midterm I and Midterm II, 60% Final Exam
Homework is a very important part of the course and in order to fully master the topics it is essential that you work carefully on every assignment and try your best to complete every problem.
Your total homework score will be based on the total possible homework points available. After each homework you can complete an optional online HW review highlighting key concepts. If you complete the questionnaire for an assignment and that assignment is your lowest homework score, that score will be dropped from your homework average.
Homework may be done alone or with at most four partners. Partners may be in any of the sections of Math 152. You are free to change partners between assignments. Problems should be solved together, not divided up between partners. For homework help, consult your textbook, class notes, lecturer, and TAs. It is considered a violation of the policy on academic integrity to:
 look or ask for answers to homework problems in other texts or sources, including the internet, or to
 discuss the homework problems with anyone outside your group (unless you are in office hours with someone from the instructional team).
Homework solutions should be neatly written or typed and turned in through Gradescope by 11pm. Illegible assignments will not be graded. For stepbystep instructions on scanning and uploading your homework, see this handout. Late homeworks will not be accepted. Submit early drafts well before the deadline to make sure partial work is graded.
The Piazza forum for our class where questions can be posted and answered. It is a very helpful resource!
