CECS 301 Computer Logic Design II © 2012 R. W. Allison 301 Syllabus -- Page 2 Homework and Quizzes Homework will be assigned from both the textbook and from instructor designed problems. The purpose of the homework is to help constitute the student with the important, and sometimes difficult, concepts related to lectures and/or assigned reading. Note: due dates will be given when homework is assigned -- absolutely no late homework will be accepted. “Pop quizzes” will be given to help solidify lecture/reading material. Lab Assignments The due dates for each lab assignment will be announced when assigned. Students should plan ahead for difficulties and not put off working on the assignments until the last minute. I strongly suggest that you start to work on your lab assignments as soon as you receive them. The secret to success is putting some careful work “up front,” solidifying your design, and finishing it as soon as possible. The philosophy of this class is to prepare you for the "real world" environment. In the "real world" you are rewarded for meeting the schedules set up by management and frowned upon when you are the case of a schedule slip. Thus, late lab assignments will suffer heavy penalization (5% per day).
