Projects


All project submissions must be made through ICON.  Any other method of submission like paper copies or email attachments will not be accepted.  Project deliverables must be submitted in ICON before midnight on the due date.  The projects are group projects and I expect to see equal participation among project members.  Towards end of the course each student will submit a confidential survey about other project team members contribution.  If a project team member did not contribute equally to the project their grade will be reduced accordingly.  If you are not available on the day team selection is done then you will have to accept my team assignment.  


Exams


All examinations will be closed book, closed notes. You must receive permission to take an exam at a different time at least one week prior to the scheduled date or have a documented and verifiable emergency. Failure to do so will result in a score of zero for the exam. You have up to one week after I return an exam to bring to my attention any problems with the score. 


Assignment


All assignments must be turned in through ICON before midnight on due date.  I will accept only assignments submitted through ICON.  Paper copies and email attachment will not be accepted.  Students are expected to participate in class discussions.
