The grade will be given based on several homework assignments and a
Final. The assignments will combine programming tasks with theoretical
problems. I welcome discussions
among the students but by the end of the day each student should
write the paper or code on his/her own. Failure to abide by this policy
will be considered an academic integrity
The slides and other resources are now available under the new CMS. If you can't login
send me your NetID and I will add you to the list of students even if
you're not formally registered for the course.
The final is scheduled for 12/9 9-11:30 in Hollister 314. You are only allowed to use one
page of size letter written or typed on one side only.
