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 30 points being deducted.
- Home works will not be accepted past the third 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-).
- Buy a few high-density disks: for your own good you must save all programs on a disk and back them up on another disk.
There is a home page for this course available on the world wide web at the following address:http://cs.nyu.edu/courses/spring03/V22.0002-003/index.htmYou should use this to obtain assignments and programs done in class.
I will be sending information, hints, help, etc. to everyone in the class via the class mailing list, but first you must subscribe to it (this is an absolute requirement for this class):
