Reading will be assigned on a weekly basis. The homework portion of your grade will be based on review questions from the reading. Questions will be due at the beginning of most Thursday classes. Because we may discuss solutions to the assignments, late homework assignments will not be accepted. There will be no exceptions to this rule.
The quiz portion of your grade will be based on quizzes administered throughout the semester. You are responsible for being in class on the day of the quiz. Make-up quizzes will be given only in the case of a medical emergency.
The project portion of your grade will be based on four substantial programming projects assigned throughout the semester. A project assignment submitted on time is eligible for full credit. A project assignment submitted late by 1 week or less is eligible for a maximum of 80%. A project assignment submitted more than 1 week late is not eligible for credit. Extensions will be granted only in the case of a medical emergency or other extraordinary circumstances which can be verified by your dean.
ALL assignments are to be completed individually unless specified, in writing, on the assignment. Academic dishonesty will NOT be tolerated. This is your warning! Students are encouraged to meet with me if they have questions regarding assignments or this policy. Students caught cheating will face severe penalty. Please see: this web page for a discussion of the policies we will follow with respect to academic dishonesty.
