Office: Davis 111 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (207)-859-5852 Office hours: MTWR 2:00 - 4:00 pm or by appointment If the door is open and I'm not already in a meeting, feel free to come in.
|Assignments||Bi-weekly Projects: Every project has two parts (the problem set and the programming assignment) and is assigned usually every other Tuesday. The usual deadline is the midnight of the second Tuesday after the project is assigned.|
|Submission, Late Policy||
You are expected to email me your projects. The subject
of your email should follow this format
Projects are graded based on a 30 point scale. Late projects will receive a maximum score of 26/30, so handing in something on the due date is generally better than handing in a complete assignment late. As you all have busy schedules, you may have one four-day extensions you can use at your discretion over the course of the semester, excepting only the final project. That means you may choose to hand in one of the projects except the last one on Saturday instead of Tuesday.
|Class Participation||You are expected to attend every class. Discussion is a vital part of the learning experience. Good class discussion needs your contribution.|
The course grade will be determined as follows:

|Collaboration, Academic honesty||
Computer science, both academically and professionally, is a collaborative discipline. In any collaboration, however, all parties are expected to make their own contributions and to generously credit the contributions of others. In our class, therefore, collaboration on homework and programming assignments is encouraged, but you as an individual are responsible for understanding all the material in the assignment and doing your own work. Always strive to do your best, give generous credit to others, start early, and seek help early from both your professors and classmates.
The following rules are intended to help you get the most out of your education and to clarify the line between honest and dishonest work. We reserve the right to ask you to verbally explain the reasoning behind any answer or code that you turn in and to modify your project grade based on your answers. It is vitally important that you turn in work that is your own. We do use automated plagiarism detection software, so please be sure to abide by these, rather minimal, rules. Reports of academic dishonesty are handled by an academic review board and a finding of academic dishonesty may result in significant sanctions.
