Like most CS courses, CS3366 is very much a "learn by doing"
course. Reflecting this, grades will emphasize the problem
sets. Grades will be computed on a 200 point scale. You are
granted 10 points gratis. The remaining 190 points are
distributed as follows:
Grades will be recorded on the Canvas website.
- 90 points over 7 problem sets; your lowest problem set
score will be discarded and replaced by your average score
for the 7 problem sets;
- 80 points over 3 exams --- 20 points for each of two
midterms and 40 points for the final exam;
- 20 points for class and piazza participation;
- Unless specified
otherwise, problem sets must be
submitted by pushing your repository to GitHub by
midnight on the due date.
NB: under no circumstances at all can code be submitted
for grading by attaching it to an email message. An
attempt to submit code via email probably won't
receive a reply notifying the sender that the
attempted submission failed.
Late problem sets will be penalized 20% each day.
- Students missing an exam without prior
permission of the instructor will receive a zero for that
exam unless they provide a note from their doctor.
- Any violation
the university's policy on academic integrity will
result in a failing grade for the course.
