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.
- 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.
- If you do not submit all of the programs, you cannot pass the course (you will get at most a D).
- Submit both the program and the output stapled together.
- Buy a few high-density disks, all programs must be saved on a disk and backed-up on another disk.
