Your first "assignment" is to complete the survey and choose a homework partner by midnight of the first Friday of the course (see details below)
Sunday 8/26: Homework pairs will be posted to the myWPI discussion board (general announcements forum).
There will be one homework due every Thursday night (except for the last week of the term, when the homework will be due on Tuesday). No credit will be given for late assignments. (See full policy.)
The individual project (details posted after midterm) has two deadlines:
See the Homework Expectations for details on how to prepare your assignments. The general grading guidelines shows the instructions we give the TAs for grading your assignments. Remember to adhere to the academic honesty and collaboration policy on all assignments.
Here's a sample format for assignments (extra functions over the same data model could go after the test cases for portable?)

Complete the on-line survey of programming background and perceptions. This should take about 10-15 minutes. We will not assign a grader to your homeworks until we receive your survey, so please submit them by the listed due date.
Send preferences for your homework partner. Send one email to wangchiying at wpi dot edu with both names (CCed to your partner); mention CS 1102 in the subject line. Anyone who has not selected a homework partner by the deadline will be assigned one. We will assign teams of two unless we end up with an odd number of students in the class. You may request a trio, but tell me who will work with someone else if we need to split off one person.
If you want us to assign you a partner, but do not want to be paired with a particular student (or two), send email with the name of the person you do NOT want to be paired with. Please make it clear in your message that you are asking to not be paired with the named student(s) in this case.
