and Computer Science
What is definitely not allowed is to turn in programs that are identical in logic, variable names, comments, spacing, etc., except for the student's name.
Assisting a classmate is a very good thing to do. Collaborating to the point of turning in identical programs is not, unless it is explicitly permitted.
If two (or more) students turn in programs which are substantially identical for an assignment that is NOT a ``team'' assignment, ALL THOSE WITH IDENTICAL CODE will receive a grade of zero on that assignment. In addition, participants in this sort of collaboration may be referred to the University Disciplinary Council for further sanctions.
PLEASE REMEMBER: According to the syllabus, each student may ask for one (Math 61) or two (Math 10) extensions AT MOST for a program during the quarter! As published in the syllabus, NO extensions are given for programs in Math 169.
The extension(s) must be requested at least two days before the due date!! With this restriction, people sometimes have to make a choice: (1) ask for an extension (for no longer than a couple of days); (2) turn in a running program late (with the associated penalty as listed in the syllabus, i.e., 25% off if turned in on the same day, or 50% off if turned in the day); or (3) turn in an incomplete program on time.
Extensions may not be requested for certain programs (at least the last one or two) as indicated on the syllabus.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO TURN IN SOMETHING!! It can be discouraging not to be able to eliminate all errors from a program, but it is better to turn in, even a rough draft of a program than not to turn in anything at all!
Usually, there is no real "header" (burst) sheet from files printed on the PC, so merely staple your output sheets together and hand them in.
In O'Connor, check with the instructions on the wall about printing to the printer. You may have to log onto the network first.
