 Don’t take this class if you have a heavy load!  Start early  on your projects & homework  Read the book, lecture notes ahead of class. CS32 is a “weeder” class, so be careful! Attendance is optional, but if you miss class, make sure to keep up on the  material! And if you’re a graduating EE  major…  and this is the last  class you need to graduate…  DON’T tell me: “I just need a  D-. Please, please pass me.” Know C++, Know Graduation No C++, No Graduation

Project #1: Due Tues, Jan 13 th   Your  first CS32 project  is already  posted on the class website and is  due  next Tues ! In P1,  we provide you  with a  simple  C++ program . Your job is to get the program c ompiling   in Visual C++ and then  make a few  changes  to it. The goal of P1 is to allow you to  self- evaluate  to see if you’re ready for CS32. If you  feel lost  on P1… 1. Drop the class , review your C++  this quarter and take CS32 in  Spring, or 2. Suffer … Based on history, if you  have problems on P1,  you’ll get a  C or lower  in CS32…  Tues, Jan 13 th   You should seriously consider one of  two things:

Project & Midterm Policy To prevent people from  cheating  on projects (which happens every year), we now use  the following grading policy: First, we compute the avg of your midterm & final exam scores.  E.g. You got  60%  and  40%  on your exams, so your avg. is  50% . We then cap you MAXIMUM project grade at  30%  above your average exam grade.  In this case, the highest points you could get for your projects would be  80% , which is  30% higher than your exam average. (Even if you got a 99% on your projects)

Academic Integrity Agreement 1. Don’t cheat! 2. You  must  turn in a signed  Academic Integrity  Agreement  before we’ll grade your homework/projects.  It basically says:  “I won’t cheat, and if I do, you can kick my a$$ out of  school.”

Grading, Curve, etc. The average student will get a B- in this class, unless: 1. The average student is really, really good OR 2. The average student is really, really bad.  If everyone does well, everyone gets an A.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
