Comp 280 Course Policies
Your grade for this course will be based on homework (approx. 40%)
and two take-home exams (approx. 30% each). Makeup exams will only
be granted in emergency situations.
There will be one homework assignment per week. Hard-copies of
homeworks will be due in class (usually on Thursdays). Late homework
will not be accepted without prior arrangement, barring
emergencies. If you know you will miss class, slide your assignment
under the instructor's door before the end of class on the due date.
Graded homeworks will be returned in class.
The course homepage contains additional information about homework,
including formatting instructions.
Honor Code Policy
All material turned in for this class is subject to the honor code
unless otherwise noted.
Exams test your individual understanding and knowledge of the
Collaboration during exams is not tolerated.
Homeworks help you understand the material and prepare
you for the exam. You are encouraged to discuss the homework
problems and their solutions with the course staff and other students
(including those not currently taking 280). However, you must write
up your homework solutions on your own, without assistance or input
from other students. Submitted solutions copied from or shared with
another student will constitute a violation of the honor code. If you
have questions about the honor code policy, ask the instructor.
Warning: The exams are designed to test your understanding of
the homework material. If you fail to understand the homework
problems or solutions, you cannot understand the lecture material and
you are unlikely to pass the course.
Any student with a disability requiring accommodations in this class is
encouraged to contact the instructor after class or during office hours.
Additionally, students can contact the Coordinator for Disabled Student
Services in the RMC Cloisters. If you need accommodations for exams, you
must speak with the instructor during the first two weeks of class.
