MET CS 566 Introduction to Algorithms

Course Format and Grading Policy

New material will be presented in lecture format. Reviews, exercises and homework solutions will take place in discussion. Participation in the discussions, although not mandatory, is strongly recommended and may result in extra credit.
Mandatory homework, a project, midterm and a final examination will provide the basis for the grade. Late homework will not be accepted unless permission by the instructor was given prior to the due date.
No predetermined scale will be used. The final grade will be assigned based on the following weighting
Cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated. They will result in no credit for the homework or examination. This should not be understood as a discouragement for discussing the material or your particular approach to a problem with other students in the class. On the contrary - I urge you to share your thoughts, questions and solutions. Naturally, if you choose to work in a group, I will be expecting more than one and highly original solutions rather than the same mistakes.
