Extra Instruction

You are strongly encouraged to come in for extra instruction (EI) when you are having trouble with material. You may schedule EI in advance or you may simply drop by and, if I'm available, I'll help you. I'm willing to try to answer questions via e-mail and phone, but for many problems face-to-face is more appropriate, so my response to an e-mail question may be ``Come in and see me.''

Grading

The break-down on your final grades will be:

Honor

Exams
All work on exams must be completely your own. No references are allowed unless explicitly specified by me.
Homeworks
You may collaborate as much as you like on homework, but the actual pencil-to-paper or fingers-to-keyboard effort must be your own.
Projects
You may not consult with any person but me concerning projects. Projects are tools for learning as well as assessment, and this may cause students to see collaboration as a bit of a moral gray area. Therefore, I reiterate: No collaboration on projects is allowed. I am the only person you may consult with, and I strongly encourage you to do so if you are having trouble.

Capstone

A Capstone Paper and Presentation (refer to COMPSCIDEPTINST 1520.1D for requirements) must be completed in order to receive a passing grade for this course. The exact rules governing the effects of the Capstone requirement on grading for this course are described in the above instruction.
