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 post your questions on Piazza.
Please use email for questions that apply to your personally and are clearly of no interest or the business of other students (e.g., grading problems, absence issues, special accomodations). If you send me an email about course content that probably is of interest to all students, I won't answer it. If you aren't sure, then email is ok and I'll let you know if you should re-ask it on Piazza.

One groundrule. You can't put actual code for any of the homework assignments in a posting, either in a question or an answer. Doing so is a violation of the Academic Integrity Policy as you are making it possible for another student to get a potential solution without actual doing their own work.
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%.
Class participation is a subjective grade based on my perception on whether you've participated. I will be randomly calling on students during lecture about course content and you're being there and being willing to answer, even if not correctly, counts. It also includes participation on Piazza, either by asking or answering questions.
