Expect 6 hours of lecture, 2 hours of discussion, 4 hours of programming laboratory, and an average of 12 hours of self-scheduled programming laboratory per week.
Lab assignments are posted on the class website.
Lab assignments are due at midnight of the evening
of the due date indicated on the course
outline. Completed lab work must be posted to your student account on the UNIX server.
For questions on lab assignments, anytime and anywhere, use the
online discussion group (accessible via links on the class website:
Students may post and reply to questions in order to help eachother.
The instructor monitors the discussions and answers questions
when appropriate. Use this method so that all students benefit
from questions, answers, and clarifications.
Five points per day will be deducted for each late assignment.
Each student is allowed 5 "slip days" for the term without penalty.
Late work will be accepted until midnight of the evening of Saturday Aug 18th. No credit will be awarded
for any late work after that time.
Contact the instructor in person in lab, lecture, or office hour,
or by email.
The final exam and the midterm exam are both open book
and open note.
Arrangements for missed exams must be made
with the instructor in advance.
No credit will be given for work that is not original. Points
awarded for lab work that is later found to be not original will be withdrawn.
Points awarded for work that is deleted from the student's UNIX account or replaced
before grades are assigned at the end of the semester will be withdrawn.
Lectures start at 11:10am sharp, and go for 75 minutes. Do not trust
classroom clocks -- check the time on http://www.time.gov/
which is synchronized to the atomic clock.
