Homework, Programs


Exam (1) Oct 21


Late Policy: Late homework will be accepted, but with a penalty. An assignment turned in 1-7 days late, will lose 3% of the total value of the assignment per day late. The eight day late the penalty will be 40% of the assignment, the ninth day late the penalty will be 60%, after the ninth day late the penalty will be 80%. Once a solution to an assignment has been posted or discussed in class, the assignment will no longer be accepted. Late penalties are always rounded up to the next integer value.

Email & Assignments : Hard copy of each assignment is to be turned during class. Due to the size of the class and past problems with formatting student’s emailed assignments emailing assignments is discouraged. Any emailed assignment will incur a 4% penalty, formatting problems (which will result in losing points) are the responsibility of the student and assignment deadlines are strictly enforced on emailed assignments. I hope to set up source code repositories for students to turn in assignments electronically. Once that happens no assignments will be accepted via email.


No Extra Credit : There will not be any extra credit assignments. There will not be any extra credit problems in the assignments.

Cheating : Any one caught cheating will receive an F in the course.
