Note that there is a link on the homepage to the lecture slides that will be used in class. You may find it helpful to get a printed copy of the lecture slides before the class in which they will be used. The lecture slide files are in PowerPoint format.
There are also links on the homepage to each section of CMSC 104. This is where your assignments, grades, and any announcements relevant to your particular section will be posted.
Final letter grades will be determined as follows.
Final grades will NOT be curved. Do not ask.
A grade of "I" (Incomplete) will only be given in the case of a verifiable medical emergency or other such dire circumstance.
Tardiness: Please be on time! Class begins at the scheduled time. Being late is disruptive to the class. Habitual tardiness will not be tolerated.
Responsibility for Class Material: You are responsible for all material covered in lecture, even if it is not in the textbook. You are responsible for the material in the readings, even if they are not covered during lecture.
Hardware and Software: You do not need to own a computer for this class. All hardware and software needed will be available on campus.
E-mail: In addition to office hours, you may communicate with me via e-mail. I do my best to answer my e-mail in a timely and thorough manner, but backups do occur. Also, do not expect a reply on weekends, over holidays, or late in the evening.
A project that runs incorrectly will receive no more than 80% of the grade. A project that does not compile will receive no more than 50% of the grade. These guidelines are for incomplete projects where a good effort was made. Garbage will receive 0%.
All projects must compile on either the UMBC8 or UMBC9 computer under the "cc" compiler.
All projects are due by midnight on the date listed in the Lecture Schedule. No late projects will be accepted. (For those using the network via ResNet, ResNet being down is no excuse for a late project. If ResNet goes down, get to a computer lab and complete your project.)
You will be turning your projects in electronically. Details will be announced in class before you need to submit your first project.
If your project is turned in by someone else, both you and the person copying your project will receive a 0 for that project. This includes "substantially similar" projects. Furthermore, all parties concerned will have their prior projects checked for cheating. So, if you cheat on Project 4, you can lose all the points from Projects 1 through 3 as well, even though you may have done all the work and just "let" other people copy from you.
