Course home Outline and lecture notes Assignments


There will be four assignments, each consisting of a written section and a programming section. These are to be completed individually, and together will count for 65% of the final grade.

Final project

In addition, there will be a final project for the course, to be completed in groups of 2-3. This will be worth 35% of the final grade. In-class project presentations will be the last day of class, and a written report will be due at the end of reading period.

Late Policy

Assignments 1 through 4 are due at 11:59 PM on the due date. Late assignments are marked down 1/3 per day. One minute late is the same as one day late. You are given 3 free late days that you can use any time during the semester.

No late presentations or reports will be permitted for the final project.

Collaboration Policy

You may discuss assignments with others, but everything handed in must be your own work. All code must be your own - you may not use code from your classmates, the internet, or any other source.

For the final project, you are expected to collaborate within your group, and to look at other projects and publications for inspiration. However, you must acknowledge any ideas that are not your own, and you may not directly re-use others' code.

Submitting Your Work

Please submit your solutions to the programming assignments electronically, by creating a .zip or .tar.gz file containing your code, results, and a README and attaching it to an email to Please include "CS496" in the subject line of the email.

Please submit your writeup in plain text or HTML, not in MS Word format.
