Homework Re-Dos For each homework assignment, you will be given an opportunity to submit a second time. You have the following options, and resulting outcomes:  Do no resubmit anything --> Your overall grade for that assignment will be based only on your first submission. You will NOT be penalized for not re-submitting.  Resubmit ALL files --> Upon resubmitting, you MUST resubmit ALL files for the entire assignment (even those that you did not change). Your overall grade for that assignment will be based on the average of your two submissions (the last submission from each submittal period for the given assignment). We do NOT guarantee you will receive feedback on your first submission before the second submission is due. Comment Grades You will only receive credit for comments included in your first submission. Whatever grade you receive for comments on your first submission will be carried over to your overall grade for the second submission. Comment early, comment often! Help!!! (Resources) There are many resources available to help you succeed in this course (listed below). If you are struggling with a topic, make sure you seek assistants from these resources. The sooner the better! It doesn't hurt to be proactive either. Read ahead. Do extra practice problems. Meet with your TA and/or professor regularly.  The Textbook - A great resource for all of the topics covered in lecture. Be sure to check out the practice problems and the end of each chapter.  Online Lecture Notes - Each professor posts their source code from lecture. You can find these files linked from the class T-Square site.  Help Desk - TAs will be available for individual help. Watch the Announcements page for details on dates, times, and locations.  Last Week Tonight - TAs will hold occasional content review sessions throughout the semester. Watch the Announcements page for details on dates, times, and locations.  Office Hours - Your professors will hold regular weekly office hours. You may also schedule appointments outside these hours if need be.  Yourself!!! - It is up to you to seek out these resources as you see fit. However, as with most things in life, you will only get out of these resources what you put in. Come prepared with
questions, and be ready to work hard. Course Expectations This course is about programming, and is more closely related to creative writing or learning a musical instrument than to any "science." As with writing or music, you cannot learn by watching or reading a book, even a great text book like ours! The only way you learn to program is by programming. It will be difficult at first, but will get easier as you gain experience. Get started. Now. The following guidelines are supplements to, not replacements for, your practicing programming skills yourself.
