Grading weights are as follows.

32% homeworks
24% midterm
44% final exam

Homeworks are weighted equally except for the Project, which is worth double.

To pass the course, you must get a passing grade in the homeworks as a whole.

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

The lateness penalty for an assignment that is submitted between N and N+1 full days late (where N is nonnegative) is 2N% of the assignment's value. That is, the penalty is 1% for being up to 1 day late, 2% for being from 1 to 2 days late, 4% 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 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 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. If you have questions about the policy, please discuss them with the instructor.
