Assignments and Grading.
Final course grades will be computed as follows:
A student who has attended all of the lectures and submitted and made a good faith effort on all of the homework can expect to receive a final course grade of B- or better. The portion of the grade earmarked for "subjective factors" typically affects only a handful of students, raising or lowering their final course grade by "1/2 letter" grade (e.g, B to B+ or B-).
All assignments are due on the date stipulated, so that correct answers can be distributed and/or freely discussed in lecture after the due date. Late submissions will receive a grade deduction of two "1/2 letters". (E.g., A becomes B+; A- becomes B; B+ becomes B-, etc).
Academic Integrity. Academic integrity violations will be prosecuted aggressively. Do not discuss or collaborate with other students in the class on the assigned homeworks unless the assignment explicitly states otherwise. The source and the sink in an illicit collaboration both will receive a penalty.
Course materials appearing on the course web site or provided to you in CMS are the intellectual property of the Professor. Students are not permitted to share, buy, or sell those materials. Such unauthorized behavior constitutes academic misconduct. In addition, you are prohibited from posting, submitting, or acquiring course materials or content through online "study" platforms. If you acquire or otherwise access course materials through such a platform, you are violating the Code of Academic Integrity. (Cornell is able to trace posts from internet sites, including identifying the individuals who provide content and those who access and/or use the content).
Finally, students are expected to be familiar with the University's and the CS Department's various policies on appropriate use of computers.
