- Homework Assignments:
There will be 3 homework assignments in this course.
The assignments consist of written parts as well
as programming exercises on simulated robot mechanism
and are due in or before class on the date indicated on the
assignment. Solutions will be posted shortly after on
the web page. Late assignments will not be accepted and
extensions will only be granted in extreme
situations. If you find yourself in such a situation
and can not deliver a homework on time, immediately
inform the instructor. Homework solutions must be your
work only. Violations of this will not be tolerated
and result in severe penalties for all parties
For the 3 projects groups of 3-5 students will be
formed. Each project will involve designing and
programming of a real robot system to solve a given
task. At the end of each project, the programmed robot
system has to be presented and a project report
describing the design decisions made has to be
delivered. Again, no extensions are generally granted
for projects. If for any reason you can not finish the
project or deliver the report in time, inform the
instructor as early as possible.
The exam is closed book, closed notes and
will cover the materials until “Adaptation and
Learning” with an emphasis on the more theoretical
aspects. As in the case of homework extensions, a
make-up exam will only be given in extreme
situations. If for any such reason you can not attend
the exam, inform the instructor.
- CSE 5364:
For students enrolled in the graduate section CSE
5364 the homework assignments, as well as the exam
will contain additional problems which are not
required for students of CSE 4360.
At The University of Texas at Arlington, taking attendance is not required but attendance is a critical indicator in student success. Each faculty member is free to develop his or her own methods of evaluating students' academic performance, which includes establishing course-specific policies on attendance. As the instructor of this section, I strongly encourage class attendance. Note that you are responsible for any course content covered in class irrespective of it being in the class notes. However, while UT Arlington does not require instructors to take attendance in their courses, the U.S. Department of Education requires that the University have a mechanism in place to mark when Federal Student Aid recipients begin attendance in a course. UT Arlington instructors will report when students begin attendance in a course as part of the final grading process. Specifically, when assigning a student a grade of F, faculty report the last date a student attended their class based on evidence such as a test, participation in a class project or presentation, or an engagement online via Canvas. This date is reported to the Department of Education for federal financial aid recipients.
- Grading Policy:
The final grade will be calculated using the following
