There is a 10% per day late penalty on assignments that are not turned in on time. Final grades will not be rounded up, and no extra credit opportunities will be given on an individual basis.
The University provides the opportunity to provide grading feedback midway through the semester. This will take into account your score on the mid-term exam and the programming projects submitted up to that point. Any student receiving less than a 65% on either of these will receive a "U" for their mid-semester grade. If this happens to you, please don't hesitate to talk with me about how we can improve your performance in this class.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the letter and spirit of the Honor Constitution.
For assignments, you may discuss the task with other students, but all of your work must be your own. You must yourself type and understand every line of code in each assignment you submit. It is an honor code violation to copy code directly from another student either by copy and paste or by transcription, or to copy code from any online source. You must include the UMW honor pledge in the comments for each assignment you submit.
For lab exercises, you may collaborate more with those next to you. You still must type and submit your own work, but looking at each others programs and helping one another is OK. Lab exercises are to ensure that you understand the ideas in the lab. Cheating would only hurt yourself.
For exams, you can not talk to anyone during the exam, or use any kind of notes. You must include a signed UMW honor pledge at the top of your exams.
If you have any questions or need clarification, please don't hesitate to contact me!
