http://webclass.stanford.edu/~webclass/class/cs245a/It is not ready at the time these notes are sent for duplication, but we shall announce in class when it is time to go to the above URL and register yourself for CS245A.
We hope that messages to the class mailing list, when set up,
will be limited to notes of general interest
to the class.
In most circumstances, you should use the
No late homeworks will be accepted. However, each student is allowed one extension of at most 48 hours on either written work or project. If both a project and written homework is due on a day, then the extension can be applied to both. However, otherwise the 48 hours cannot be divided among assignments.
You may give the TA's homeworks in class, or you may deliver the homework to Ms. Winkler's office (495 Gates) by 5PM on the day due. You will there find a sealed box in which to place your homework. Also, if you feel inclined to do so, Ms. Winkler will give you a receipt for your homework, which you can save if there is any dispute about whether work was submitted on time. However, note that Ms. Winkler goes home at about 3:30PM. If you deliver work later than that, slip it under the door. We'll collect it at 5PM.
SITN students do not have to use this system, since SITN timestamps and records each received piece of work. However, it is the responsibility of each SITN student to get their work delivered with a timestamp on the day due or earlier.
Final: On campus, Thursday, March 19, 1998, 3:30-6:30PM, location to be determined. All local TV students must come to campus.
We shall not deduct credit for small amounts of acknowledged assistance. Even working as a team on one of several problems in a problem set may not hurt your grade, as long as all members of the group acknowledge their collaboration. Such shared interest can be beneficial to all concerned. We do reserve the right to give less than full credit in circumstances where it appears that there has been large-scale division of labor, and you are not getting as much learning out of the assignment as you should. However, as long as you acknowledge your sources, you cannot get into Honor-Code trouble.
If you have any questions about what this policy means, please discuss the matter with the instructor now.
