Timetable and assessment
You are expected to fully participate in the weekly tutorial/lab sessions. Except in the case of class/tutorial missed due to illness, you should not expect to use the instructor's office hour to make up for skipping class or tutorial. Missed material is the responsibility of the student to make up. The textbook and classmates notes are your first resource when class/tutorials are missed.
Each tutorial may involve study questions, and may be specifically geared towards helping solve the current assignment.
To work on your tutorials and assignments, you will be given accounts for the computing science labs.
There is a user id and password associated with each account (to prevent others from reading your mail).
The appropriate use of these accounts will be discussed in your first tutorial.
Each assignment has a due date and time. Assignments must be submitted before the due date and time, using the submission process which will be discussed in the class and lab sessions. No other method of submission will be accepted. Late assignments will be accepted for up to two days after the deadline, with 10% penalty for each day late.
Assignment marking will be based on the correctness of your solutions, the quality of your code and supporting documentation, and adherence to standards and restrictions which will be specified on an assignment-by-assignment basis.
You are required to cite any works you used in constructing the solution you submit, including helpful discussions with other students, online sources, emails, etc.
Each assignment will have a weight, so that longer or more challenging assignments can be given weight in accordance with the amount of effort I believe they take.

An appeal of the course grade is a matter of University Policy.
