Excused absences are handled in accordance with CSU policies. If you are ill please let us know right away. CSU requires verifiable proof (e.g. a note from the health center) for students who wish to not be penalized for missed classes and work.
We also do not want you to come to class ill.Make up work will
need to be explicitly negotiated. The objectives include: getting
students to class; not spreading illness; and making
sure students who are ill receive appropriate treatment.
The material in this course (including learning to come to class and
stay awake) is important. Excessive absences will impact your grade.
Midterm and Finals: Make-up exams are only given for extraordinary circumstances (e.g., illness, death of family member). Students must consult with the instructor as soon as possible, preferably before the start of the exam. Examination dates are listed in the syllabus; be aware of them and plan accordingly.
Programming assignments: Programs are submitted electronically. Details of how this is done appears with the first assignment. Always check the progress page for due dates. The due date will include a day and time. The assignment will also specify a late acceptance period which will include a late penalty of 50%. After the late period, electronic submission is closed; students that have not submitted programs receive no points for the assignment.
Homeworks: Homeworks must be submitted per the instructions in the assignment and are due at the beginning of class on Tuesdays. Handwritten and scanned is acceptable, but the handwriting must be legible. The instructors and TAs reserve the right to decide whether or not a paper is legible. Late homeworks may be turned in at beginning of class on Thursday, and are subject to a 50% late penalty.
Quizzes: Make-up quizzes are not given. In the case of extraordinary circumstances (e.g., illness, death of family member), the grade will be exempted.
Assignments will be submitted via CANVAS unless stated otherwise.
Collaboration: We encourage you to talk with other students about your assignments and questions, but make sure you do your own homework. You may not copy another student's program or other work (either with or without their knowledge), nor write code or other work for them. Please read the departmental policy statement regarding incompletes, academic integrity, and class attendance. This policy statement can be read here: student information.
