Problem sets are due at the beginning of lectures (Wednesdays??). Mutually beneficial collaboration on these problem sets is encouraged, provided that the names of all collaborators are cited near the student's name. Marking will be based on effort. Please do not put student id numbers on problem sets.
Quizzes will be held at the beginning of selected lectures where problem sets have been assigned. The only permitted aids are the student's own problem set and a calculator.
Design assignments must be completed in groups of one or two without assistance. Submissions are due by 3:40 pm in the CMPE480 lecture-assignment box in the ECERF-ETLC atrium. Late submissions will be penalized 20% of the assigned mark per school day.
