Course Content Discussion:
This term we will be using Piazza for course content discussion.
The system is highly catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from
classmates and/or myself.
Rather than emailing questions to me, I request that you to post your
questions on Piazza.
Find the CS3411 Piazza class page at:

|5 Programming Assignments
You must get at least 60 out of 100 points on EVERY programming assignment to
pass this course.
Your program may be resubmitted at most two times in order to achieve the 60%
required to pass the course.
Exact due dates for resubmissions will be determined as needed but will usually
be within 2-3 days of when the graded program is returned to you in class.
Each resubmission will incur a 10% penalty (subtracted AFTER the score on the
assignement has been determined).
For example, if you get below 60% on the first submission and you resubmit it
and get a score of 67 (good enough to pass), the grade for it will be recorded
as 67-10 = 57%.
| 90-100 || A |
| 85-90 || AB |
| 80-85 || B |
| 75-80 || BC |
| 70-75 || C |
| 65-70 || CD |
| 60-65 || D |
| <60 || F |
Programing assignments must be submitted by the due date and time indicated on
the assignment to receive full credit.
Programming assignments can be resubmitted at most two times in order to
achieve the 60 points required to pass the course or to improve your score.
Each resubmission will incur a 10 point penalty.
You must take the final exam at the officially scheduled time.
You will not pass the course if you do not take the final exam.
If you come to me with a problem meeting a deadline BEFORE it is due I am
pretty reasonable about deciding if an excuse is a good one.
If you come to me afterwards I'll be very skeptical and will almost certainly
require clear, written proof of whatever caused the problem.
