Course Requirements

### Pre-requisites

CS1, CS2, Discrete Math and Calculus.

### Work

- Small (possibly self-testing) problem sets, one every one or two weeks.
- One programming assignment, done in C++.
- One midterm and a final, each with an in-class and a take-home component.
- Final Project with in-class presentation.

The final exam will be during the exam period. The in-class
midterm and the final are closed book and will test general
understanding of concepts and algorithms taught in class. The
take-home components are small problem sets similar to those
assigned for homework throughout the semester, and are open book.

### Grading

- Homeworks and class participation 30%.
- Exams 50%.
- Final Project 20%.

### General Grading Guidelines

Homework has to be submitted in time. Written solutions to
problems sets should be legible and neat, or will not receive the full grade.
Assigned work for which a paper or web page is required should be
submitted electronically by the deadline and (if applicable) the
read permissions set on. No late homework is accepted, unless
there are special circumstances.

I will occasionally recommend simple exercises for enhancing the
understanding of the concepts done in class. Those will not be
graded, but might be discussed during the problem sessions at the
end of the lectures.
