Collaboration and Additional Resources
Students may work in collaborative groups of any size. All names and NetIDs must appear as authors of a single submitted homework. Everyone in the group receives the same homework score. If any student appears on more than homework, the lowest of the scores will be given and an additional penalty will be assessed.
Feel free to consult any outside resources. All ideas that are not your own must be cited at the end of your homework in a separate section clearly labeled "CITATIONS". To not ackowledge such contributions constitutes plagiarism.
The exams are constructed under the assumtion that each student has fully mastered the homework concepts as if he or she has done the work alone.
Additional information can be found in the first lecture slides of 1/17.
Late Homework Submission
Unless otherwise specified, assignments will be penalized at 20% for any fraction of two days late. Assignments submitted later than 2 days will receive no credit. Late homework must be officially turned in via Compass in the same manner as on-time homework.
Early Homework Submission
Up to 20% Extra Credit is given if your final handin is two full days before the due date and time. Early homework must be officially turned in via Compass in the same manner as on-time homework.
Students registered for 4 units will do a significant AI programming project with an accompanying paper. This project must be done alone and is due by the last class meeting. It must demonstrate AI concepts learned beyond those covered in class and is worth 25% of the grade. Students are encouraged but not required to submit a project proposal to the professor by mid-semester.
Collaboration / Cheating
Cheating is defined in the Student Code. It includes but is not limited to plagiarism. On the first occurrence, a score of zero for the assignment or exam and the course grade will be reduced by one full letter grade. A second occurrence will result in course failure.
All suspected cheating will be reported to the department.
