Classes will start on time and
as scheduled. The
un-announced quizzes will be given at
of class, and thus if you are late to class, you get 0 for the quiz. No exception.
You are responsible for all
readings, even if
the material is not explicitly covered in class. You should
read the class materials prior to class and be prepared to
discuss and ask questions about the readings and
assignments. You should also re-read the material after
class as not every topic will be covered during class time.
All work must be completed and
in at the start of class on the
late work will be accepted. Late means after the class has
begun. Note that a computer's failure is not an excuse (it
represents poor planning on your part).
If you miss a deadline or exam
recognized excuses, a written
(e.g., a coach's letter) must be handed to me at the end
a lecture. If you can't provide such, you get 0
for the missed work.
All assignment should be typed
printed properly in
Microsoft Word (i.e., no hand-writing), except any
drawings. Since both TA and instructor use a TabletPC machine for
grading and our current TabletPC configuration allows only MS Word for
pen-based writing, unfortunately, you have to use only Word in
preparing your submission. Individual project must be done
individually, and group
project must be done by all members. If I become aware that you
are not contributing to your group equally, I will intervene.
Students who participate in University-sanctioned events (such
must make prior arrangements and give ample notice. Similarly,
seniors who need to travel for job interviews or such must
notify me first.
You can't get higher grade by
offering doing an extra
work. Similarly, in grading, instructor does not consider the
status of students (whether s/he is a senior or freshman) -- just
the performance of the student. An excuse like "I need to get C
to graduate" will not be considered at all.
However, undergraduate students
and graduate students, if
any, will be graded
