MET CS 566 Introduction to Algorithms
Course Format and Grading Policy
Return to MET CS 786 home page
Page prepared by Tanya Zlateva
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
Tests: 2 @20% = 40 %
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.
