One homework every two weeks: You may discuss these among yourselves but you must do your own homework
Clarity of exposition of the solutions is requiredLate homework will not be graded for credit.
LAB AND PROJECT
Nine labs and one project Must attend a designated lab (Counts 30% of your grade).
For details on the labs, go to the department web site www.cs.txstate.edu and follow the Lab links for more information, as the lab schedules begin. Lab instructor: Conrad Miller (Conrad@cs.txstate.edu) Sheetal Gampa (email@example.com)
Two exams (in-class) One midterm to be held during class hours One final during final week
Tests will be open-note close-bookTests will be based on reading assignments, homework, and project Without prior arrangements, missed exam results in a grade of zero.
