Homework (problem sets / programming): 40%
Midterm (problem sets / report): 25%
Final exam (project programming / presentation): 30%
Notes: All the homework/midterm/final assignment, submission, and grading will be done through Moodle.
1. The due date for homework will be announced with homework assignment. Late homework will generally not be accepted. If there are extenuating circumstances, you should make prior arrangements with Instructor .
2. The answers to problem set are required to be uploaded to Moodle. Instructor will evaluate them and post grades there.
3. All the homework should be finished independently.
4. The midterm/final projects can be done independently or in a form of study group.
5. Each report includes: 1) your name, and 2) the names of any people you worked with, or ¡°Collaborators: none¡± if you did that completely alone.
6. Plagiarism and other dishonest behavior cannot be tolerated in any academic environment that prides itself on individual accomplishment.
