20% Homework and class participation (in class and via the CMOSedu Google groups)
Email questions should be sent to the CMOSedu Google group (not directly to the instructor).
While the instructor may likely respond quickly (to make getting the credit for the class participation challenging) questions for the instructor (only) should be asked in person during his office hours and not via email or addressed to the instructor and sent to the CMOSedu Google group.
No laptops or Internet appliances can be used during lectures or exams (no e-books).
No late work accepted. All assigned work is due at the beginning of class.
Neither the final exam nor final project will be returned at the end of the semester.
Regularly being tardy for lectures, leaving in the middle of lectures, or earlier from lectures is unacceptable without prior consent of the instructor
Cheating or plagiarism will result in an automatic F grade in the course (so do your own homework and projects!)
