Please do your own work. The default consequence for academic dishonesty is a failure
for the course. It is okay to discuss general ideas about implementing
a program with other students. It is not okay to copy another student's program. It is okay to discuss possible
program bugs. It is not okay to debug another student's program.
Students are expected to attend lectures, participate in the discussions, and complete
project assignments on time. Students should come to class prepared and speak up when
something is not clear. Being prepared means completing the assigned reading and
assignments. Students are expected to be creative and have fun!
Students with documented disabilities who may need accommodations, who have any
emergency medical information the instructor should be aware of, or who need special
arrangements in the event of evacuation, should make an appointment with the instructor
as early as possible, and no later than the first week of the term.
