15-414 Grading and
Grading will be based on assignments, a midterm, and a final
project. The assignments are worth 50% of the final grade, midterm
exam is worth 25% of the final grade, and final project is worth 25%
of the final grade.
Cheating: It can
be surprisingly easy to detect when students are not doing their own work.
Working with others on the assignments does not mean dividing the problems
among you, and then swapping answers.
There will be a problem
set about every two weeks.
Homeworks are due at the
start of class on their due date (Tuesdays).
You are welcome to confer
with other students on homeworks, just don't turn in the exact same solution.
You have to prepare the solution individually.
At the top of your assignment,
write down whom you worked with, if anyone.
