Course description and objectives


Assignments, Projects & Exams

The final grade will be computed as follows

Tentative Schedule

Academic Honor Code

You are required to read the FSU Academic Honor Code and abide by it. First violations will result in a 0 for the particular item and the lowering of the final course grade by one letter (e.g. B+ --> C+). Repeat violations will result in a grade of F.

By turning in work for a grade in this course you are representing it as being entirely your own individual work. Unless otherwise specified in writing, all programming projects are individual projects. If any assignment permits teamwork, it will be explicitly stated so in the assignment, and then the work is required to be only the work of the people on the team.

What does ``individual work'' mean? An intelligent person searches publications (including the web) for information, ideas, and code. If you use information or ideas obtained from the work of another person you must at least give credit via comments in your code stating what you have used, where you obtained it, and who is the person to whom credit is due. (Beware: If an idea is patented the above is not enough; you should not use it at all without a license.) If you use any code written by another person you must first obtain permission from the author or copyright owner, then mark the beginning and end of the quoted code using appropriate comments, and include a comment giving where you found the code and the the name of the author or copyright holder. Failure to follow these rules will be considered a violation of the Academic Honor Code.

Accommodation for Disabilities

Students with disabilities needing academic accommodations should:

  1. Register with and provide documentation to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC).
  2. Bring a letter to the instructor from the SDRC `indicating you need academic accomodations. This should be done within the first week of class.

This syllabus and other class materials are available in alternative format upon request.
