Since there is a wide range of student backgrounds in terms of CS courses taken and programming experience, I will be expecting more from students with many CS programming, data structure and algorithm courses than those with few.
I expect a high level of motivation from students taking this class. Most of you should have no trouble getting an A if you are willing to put in a reasonable amount of work.
Any student on a team that qualifies for the world finals of the ICPC will get an A in the class. Any student on a team that would have qualified except that they finished second to an MTU team that does qualify will get an A in the class.
The week-by-week content and activities in class will evolve as the semester progresses. However, there are two important activities that occur outside of class time that you are expected to participate in.
