This course is about understanding fundamental concepts in
programming languages and learning different models of
programming and computation.
We have planned 8 assignments for the quarter. When computing
the final course grade for each person, that person's
lowest-graded assignment will be dropped and the remaining
assignment grades will be averaged to get the final grade,
with each assignment weighted evenly.
Assignment Late Policy
Each person has 3 "slip days" that they can use over the
course of the quarter to delay turnin of an assignment. Slip
days can only be used in increments of 24 hours—30
minutes late is the same as 23 hours late. Slip days will be
applied automatically by the TA based on when an assignment is
Each person is responsible for their own work, and is expected
to complete the assignment without collaborating with anyone
else. High-level discussion of the concepts without anything
specific to an assignment is OK; talking specifically about
the solution to an assignment or sharing code is not
OK. Violation of this policy can lead to an F on the
assignment or, in extreme cases, an F for the entire
course. When in doubt, refer questions to the professor or TA.
