Homework and Programming Projects

Homework assignments and projects will be posted here throughout the semester. Check here frequently!

Grading Policy:

40% of your total grade will be based on homework (approx. 4% each), and 10%, 30% and 20% respectively on the three programming projects. There will be no midterm or final exam in this course. Note, however, that the third project will be due on the scheduled date of the final exam.

An Important Note on Academic Ethics:

The strength of the university depends on academic and personal integrity. In this course, you must be honest and truthful. Ethical violations include cheating on exams, plagiarism, reuse of assignments, improper use of the Internet and electronic devices, unauthorized collaboration, alteration of graded assignments, forgery and falsification, lying, facilitating academic dishonesty, and unfair competition. Report any violations you witness to the instructor. You may consult the associate dean of students and/or the chairman of the Ethics Board beforehand. See the guide on Academic Ethics for Undergraduates and the Ethics Board web site for more information.
