Please use the class Moodle discussion forum. The system is catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from classmates or from the instructors. I encourage you to post questions and discussions there.
Grades are determined by three primary criteria:
- Final exam
- Short Homeworks
Grades may be modulated by up to 5% at the instructor’s discretion (e.g., for class participation).
Unless otherwise indicated, assignments are generally due by « midnight », where « midnight » has a peculiar meaning: before I check the assignments the next school day. In other words, don’t worry if something comes up and you need an extra couple of hours to finish your assignment as long as you get it in before I check. If an assignment is due on Friday at midnight, I won’t check until Monday morning. Late assignments (turned in after I check) will be penalized 10% per day late. No late assignments will be accepted after three days.
All work submitted is expected to be your original work. Feel free to discuss your work with your fellow students, use available resources (e.g., books, articles, web pages, source code), but these resources should serve as inspiration or supporting materials only. Do not forget to cite any such resources appropriately. Failure to appropriately cite your sources may result in a grade of 0 and/or academic sanctions.
