grades will be computed as follows. Additionally, you
must receive a grade exceeding 60 in the exam segment to pass
the whole course. Full adherence to WPI's and the
department's academic honesty policies is
encouraged to discuss
homework assignments with your classmates and the course
may include general approaches to a problem, suggested
resource material and whether your final answer is correct or
not. However, each
student must hand in
their own implementation of the homework.
Copying of homework will result in a grade of zero for all
the lab you will form teams of two. You and
lab partner may discuss the general approach to the lab
assignment with other teams as well as with the course
staff. However, each
team must hand
the lab. Only
team members who contributed equally to the completion of
the lab exercise and preparation of the report should sign
the report. By signing the lab report you'll be
certifying that the work is yours! Duplication of code,
including code from previous course offerings (yes, we keep a
data base!), and/or data will result in a grade of zero for
all members of all teams involved.
Students must also return their lab IO board and any
components to receive a grade.
Students who return damaged or broken boards or components
will lose 10-20% from their lab grade depending on the
students may replace any broken component at their expense to
avoid grade penalty.
All exams are strictly
individual efforts. Copying
or otherwise cheating on an exam will result in a failing
grade for the course.
