Announcement
 All homework and midterm will be graded online using the Gradescope system. The link of the Gradescope system can be found in the Blackboard system.
 Midterm and Final will be conducted facetoface. (See the date and time in the item "Assessment Scheme" below and note that the midterm is arranged on Oct 18 (Wed) evening, not in a regular class.)
 The following arrangement at the end of the midterm will be implemented: 1. Stop writing when "pendown" is announced by the instructor. 2. Use your "smartphone" to capture images of all the (nonempty) pages of your answers when instructed by the instructor. 3. Then convert the images of your answers into a pdf file. 4. Submit the pdf file of your answers into the "Midterm" in the Gradescope system. (You will have around 15 minutes for steps 35.) 5. Submit your answer book to the instructor.
 No tutorial in the first week.
