Grading Your final numeric average will be based on the following weights: 40% Exams & Quizzes 30% Homework & Projects 20% Final Exam 10% Lecture Attendance & Participation
Letter grades A 93.0 or higher avg. 90.0 or higher on the final exam A- 90.0 or higher B+ 87.0 or higher B 83.0 or higher B- 80.0 or higher C+ 77.0 or higher C 73.0 or higher C- 70.0 or higher D+ 67.0 or higher D 63.0 or higher D- 60.0 or higher F less than 60.0
Exams & Quizzes (40%) 2 exams (15% each) 4 pop quizzes (10% total) Exams will be in the evening 6:30-10PM –more than 1 hour to complete them. –Wed. Mar 1 –Wed Apr 19 –2 days off in return If you miss a pop-quiz, you get a zero.
Homework & Projects (30%) 4-5 homework assignments (20% total) –programming involved one homework will be an extensive group project (10%)
No Late Homeworks Homework must be submitted at the beginning of lecture on the due date –or you can submit it before the due date. If you are absent or late for lecture when an assignment is due, you will recieve a grade of zero. I highly recommend that students plan ahead to start assignments as soon as possible.
Final Exam (20%) A cumulative final exam will be given during finals week. To receive an A in this course, you must score a 90 or higher (after curving) on the final exam.
Attendance and Participation (10%) Everyone starts with a grade of 93. I will lower your grade if I you are absent or late for lecture. I will increase your grade if you frequently ask or answer questions during lecture. I will not lower your grade if I only notice one absence. If I notice that you are absent more than 4 times, your attendance grade will be 60 or lower.
Attendance Policy You are expected to attend every class. Be aware of the following penalties: –You can receive up to a 10% penalty toward you final average for excessive absence and/or lateness. –In addition: An unexcused absence on the day of a pop- quiz will result in a grade of zero on the quiz. An unexcused absence from an out-of-class exam will result in a grade of zero.
Excused Absences You can be excused (not penalize) and allowed to makeup missed work for serious issues. For illness or medical emergencies, show documentation (a doctor's note). For family emergencies or other serious commitments, contact academic affairs or the counseling center. If you are concerned that an absence will not be excused, you should contact the instructor as soon as possible.
Academic Integrity Cheating on a homework, a project, a quiz, or an exam will result in –an automatic grade of zero –a letter grade reduction on your final grade. Second offense –automatically fail the course –formal letter send to the academic affairs
Academic Integrity For individual work: –You can discuss the problems and general ideas for how to approach a problem –But, your solution should be your own work and you should guard it from plagiarism. –Never compose your answers with the help of other students or tutors. –Excessive similarity in homework answers will be consider plagiarism. –If you can not adequately explain your solution to a problem, you will receive a zero for that problem.
