General course information
The homework will consist of programming assignments. Style counts (that includes using meaningful names and providing sufficient comments in the body of the programs). Assignments must be done on the computer.
There will be two midterms and a final. Your grade will be 40 percent midterms plus 40 percent final plus 20 percent homework. If you plan to continue with computer science courses, you *MUST* get a grade of C or better in this course. NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
- Ten points will be deducted for each class day late, with a possible maximum of 20 points being deducted.
- Homeworks will not be accepted past the second class date after their assigned date.
- For each assignment that you do not not hand in within the limit, your final grade will be lowered by one letter grade ( i.e., if you are averaging a B+, but you have missed 2 home works, your final grade will be B-).
- Submit both the program and the output stapled together. Email submissions will be accepted.
- Buy a few high-density floppy disks: for your own good you must save all programs on a disk and back them up on another disk.
