Attendance Policy
Each of you must attend each lecture as I usually give few questions (called as type-2 questions) that you need to solve by that week only and clear your doubts about it. Note that I usually ask them in the exams or quizzes. There could be a surprise quiz at any time in Lectures or Tutorials and sometimes I may change the % of quiz for a final grade to quite a lot.  If for some reason beyond your control (for example you are sick) you are about to miss a lecture please fill leave application form in advance that you will not be able to attend the lecture that day.

Lecture Notes

Notes are available in the lecture folder and it is advisable that you read them before coming to class this will help you to clear your doubts.
