  • Homework: You may discuss homework problems and general solution strategies with classmates, but you must write up the solutions yourself. As a courtesy to the grader, homeworks are to be written clearly and neatly. Poorly written work will not be graded. When writing algorithms, be sure not only that your solution is correct, but also that it is easy for the grader to understand why your solution is correct. Your grade will be based on the simplicity, clarity, and elegance of your solutions, as well as correctness. All resources, human, paper, or electronic, must be identified and documented properly.
  • Exams: No make ups will be given. Any missed exams will be your dropped exam, excluding the final exam. Dropped exam percentage will be added to final exam perentage
