Information
 Textbook:

The textbook for this course is:
Thomas S. Ferguson, Game Theory, Second Edition, 2014
 Grading policy:

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:

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 in a group of at most 5 people. Partners may be in any of the sections of the class. 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 of your group (unless you are in office hours with someone from the instructional team).
 Discussion Board:
 The Piazza forum for our class where questions can be posted and answered. It is a very helpful resource!
