Course Work and Grading

Homework Assignments/Projects :
Three hands-on homework assignments will be given where learned techniques are applied to practical problems.

Three small projects will be assigned where students implement and test some of the techniques.

There will be 6 quizzes, each to be held in the class after an assignment or project was due. Quizzes will test in equal parts knowledge of material taught in the course as well as of the assignment submitted. For the latter, each student will be required to bring with them a printout of their assignment, including the corresponding code.

Final Project:
In addition, every student will perform a final project that will be presented at the end of the course.

Late submission policy:
All assignments and Projects are graded out of 100 points. Assignments submitted late will be penalized, at a rate of 4 penalty points per hour. The submission time will be the time shown on Canvas. Any assignment submitted more than 25 hours late will receive no credit for the assignment. To receive credit for the assignment portion of the corresponding quiz you will have to hand in an assignment before the quiz.

At The University of Texas at Arlington, taking attendance is not required. Rather, 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.

Grading Policy:
The final grade will be calculated using the following policy:

Assignments 21 %
Projects 21 %
Quizzes 42 %
Final Project 16 %
