[class home]

Grades are weighted as follows:

13.0% homeworks
 1.5% class participation
 0.5% two feedback surveys
20.0% midterm
30.0% final exam
35.0% project

Exams are open book and open notes. You must do exams by yourself. No written makeup exams will be given.

The lateness penalty for a non-exam assignment that is submitted between N and N+1 full days late (where N is nonnegative) is 2N% of the assignment's value. For example, if an assignment is worth 100 points, the penalty is 1 point for being up to 1 day late, 2 points for being from 1 to 2 days late, 4 points for being from 2 to 3 days late, and so forth. Assignments are not accepted after the last day of instruction (this is typically the Friday before final exams), and are not accepted after the lateness penalty renders them irrelevant to the final grade.

Students are responsible for upholding the highest standards of academic integrity, and this includes following the UCLA Student Conduct Code, which prohibits (among other things) cheating, fabrication or falsification, plagiarism, multiple submissions, facilitating academic dishonesty, and conduct that threatens health or safety.

Students are encouraged to study together, and to discuss general problem-solving techniques that are useful on assignments; but when working on an individual assignment students should not share detailed notes, pseudocode or code, and all work submitted must be done individually. In particular, you should not publish your work on sites like GitHub, and you should not use a search engine like Google or generative AI like GitHub Copilot or ChatGPT to make use of solutions that others may have published. The rules for the project are different, as these are intended to be group work and each group will work on a separate project. If you have questions about the policy, please discuss them with the instructor.
