Please note that lecture slides are to complement the lectures, not to replace them. So, you are expected to attend the lectures.
Make-up exams will not be given except in fully documented cases of medical or other emergencies. Please make sure you can attend all the exams as scheduled.
All scheduled due dates/times are IOC time (US Central Time).
Due date/time will be strictly enforced. The staff will collect the submissions some time after they are due-- no work will be accepted after this collection. In other words, please do not take chance to submit late work.
Missing work gets zero credit. If you are unable to complete an assignment due to illness or family emergency, we will understand but please see the instructor as soon as possible to make special arrangements. All such exceptional cases must be fully documented.
All requests to change grading of any course work must be submitted in writing within three days of when the grades are made available. Requests must be specific and explain why you feel your work deserves additional credit. Do not ask for a regrade until you have studied and understood our sample solution.
All requests about missing (or zero) grades must be submitted in writing to the appropriate TA within three days of when the grades are announced.
All course work that you submit must be efforts of your own (if it is an individual assignment) or of your approved team (if it is a group assignment).
Discussions on readings and assignments are strongly encouraged. However, such collaboration should be limited to general strategies and ideas, but not specific solutions. As a general rule, your submitted work should represent identifiable efforts and originality of you or your approved team.
Plagiarism is a violation of this academic integrity policy.
Violation of the integrity policy will result in a fail grade of the class.
