# HOMEWORK

The course has **8 homework sets plus a Final**, according to the schedule below. The Final carries twice the weight of a homework.

- The questions are multiple-choice. This doesn't mean simplistic; some questions necessitate running a full experiment.
- Some questions are theoretical (mathematical, conceptual), and others are experimental (programming, data). The questions vary from easy to hard.
- Familiarity with some programming language or platform will help in the homework, e.g., packages for basic matrix operations and quadratic programming are needed.
- The discussion forum has numerous threads about homework and Final questions.
