There are 8 homework assignments to be completed individually. Do not show your code to any other student and do not look at any other student's code. Do not put your code in a public directory or otherwise make it public. You are encouraged to use the Submitty Discussion Forum to post questions so that other students can also answer/see the answers. Assignments are due at 11:59pm on the due date. You have 7 late days for the entire semester without penalty with a maximum of 2 late days per assignment.
Project requirements and instructions for submitting assignments will be made available for each assignment. Projects requiring programming must include the submission of well-commented source code. All programming assignments must execute successfully on the Linux operating system installed on the Submitty system. Documented source code and separate files containing answers to questions will be required for each assignment.
There are two partial exams and one final exam, to be completed individually. All answers must be your own.
There are 8 in-class quizzes, which are to be completed individually after a brief group discussion.
Final letter grades will be assigned as follows:
Student-teacher relationships are built on trust. For example, students must trust that teachers have made appropriate decisions about the structure and content of the courses they teach, and teachers must trust that the assignments that students turn in are their own. Acts that violate this trust undermine the educational process. The Rensselaer Handbook of Student Rights and Responsibilities and The Graduate Student Supplement define various forms of Academic Dishonesty and you should make yourself familiar with these. In this class, all assignments that are turned in for a grade must represent the student’s own work. In cases where help was received, or teamwork was allowed, a notation on the assignment should indicate your collaboration.
Violations of academic integrity may also be reported to the appropriate Dean (Dean of Students for undergraduate students or the Dean of Graduate Education for graduate students, respectively).
If you have any question concerning this policy before submitting an assignment, please ask for clarification. In addition, you can visit the following site for more information on our Academic Integrity Policy: Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Judicial Affairs..
