All rights reserved. -It is a copyright violation to share, email, or post any course content—either digitally or hardcopy—with anyone other than classmates registered for the course during the same semester as you. •Attendance •All lecture attendance will be tracked. •Missing three consecutive unexcused absences, results in your final course grade being reduced by one letter grade (e.g. A- reduced to B-, B reduced to C). •Missing a total of five unexcused absences, results in an automatic grade of F. •Documented absences for health, bereavement, or religious holidays do not count as unexcused absences against the policies above. •If you are not able to attend a lecture for any reaswon, you are responsible for any information communicated during that class, including but not limited to: lecture notes, assignments, announcements, and schedule changes. •If you decide to drop the class, be sure to officially drop or withdraw from the course. Otherwise, you risk receiving an ‘F’ or ‘NF’ for the course. •Email Communication -All email communication with the instructor must be sent from your valid UTD email address. This is for your protection to prevent others from gaining personal information about you by faking your identity. -All email communication with the instructor must include the course number and section as the first text in the subject line, formatted exactly as it is in the header of this syllabus.

Students guilty of plagiarism will receive zero credit for the plagiarized work and may be subject to further academic penalties, per university policy. -UTD Comet Creed – This creed was voted on by the UT Dallas student body in 2014. It is a standard that Comets choose to live by and encourage others to do the same: !“As a Comet, I pledge honesty, integrity, and service in all that I do.”Homework and Participation •All Homework assignments shall be submitted online through eLearning. •Homeworks are due before the deadline time passes. e.g. an assignment that is due at 11:59PM is LATE if the time stamp is 11:59PM. Please do not wait until the last minute to submit. The unpredictability of your internet connection is not a valid excuse for a late submission."•Answer keys to homework will be visible online automatically after the submission deadline passes. Therefore, late Homework cannot be accepted and will be assigned zero credit (0 points). •Submit incomplete work before the deadline for partial credit. Multiple Homework submissions are permitted before the deadline. Programming Assignments •All programming assignments shall be submitted online through eLearning. •Late programming assignments are not accepted. Midterm Exam and Final Exam •The Midterm and Final Exam are both closed book and closed notes. •The Final Exam will be comprehensive, although more weight will be given to material presented after the midterm. •Both the Midterm and Final Exam will be administered in the UTD Testing Center -You will be required to reserve a seat in advance in order to guarantee being able to sit for an exam.
