IST 210: Organization of Data (4 credits) Course Conduct ____________________________________________________________ - Classes will start on time and end as scheduled. The un-announced quizzes will be given at the beginning of class, and thus if you are late to class, you get 0 for the quiz. No exception. - All work must be completed and turned in at the START of class on the assigned date. After that deadline, you will get a 50% point deduction if you submit late by the midnight of the same day. After the midnight, NO late submission is allowed. Note that a computer's failure is not an excuse of being late -- i.e., it represents poor planning on your part. - Half-ready lecture slides will be uploaded to the class web page one day before the class. Before coming to class, students need to either bring a print-out (so that they can make a note for the missing parts) or prepare to type them during class. No complete version of slides will be provided (I simply don't have ones). If you miss classes, it is your responsibility to catch up missing materials. - In-class usage of computers for only academic purpose (e.g., note-taking) is permitted. - You are responsible for all the 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. - If you miss a deadline or exam due to university recognized excuses, a written documentation (e.g., a coach's letter, doctor's note) must be handed to me at the end of a lecture. If you can't provide such, you get 0 for the missed work. - All assignment should be typed and printed properly in some word processing software (i.e., no hand-writing), except any drawings. - 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 as athletics) 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 separately.
