Submitting Work:
You should submit your work through the CourseSite course website. Your submission should be plain text (ASCII), a Microsoft Word file, or a PDF file. Any other format will not be accepted, unless you arrange for an exception ahead of time due to special circumstances.
Homework assignments will be graded primarily for completeness and correctness.
No late hand-in homework will be accepted. If you encounter any problem in submitting your work via the CourseSite, you should submit your work via emails to me and our TA before the deadline to avoid the late submission penalty. Exceptions will only be granted if an extenuating circumstance can be proven to the satisfaction of the instructor.
Collaboration / Academic Honesty:
All graded work is expected to be your own. In particular, you are not allowed to ask anyone but the instructor or TA for help with your homework or programming assignments. However, you are free to discuss the topics and concepts of the course with your classmates, as long as you do not discuss the specifics of any assignment. Any violation of this policy could result in failure of the course. For some pop-quizzes, by explicit instructions, the instructor may allow you to collaborate with the classmates.

Please visit the following two websites and read all details of the academic integrity policy: Academic Integrity at Lehigh University: http://www.lehigh.edu/~indost/conduct/aiforstudents.shtml and Improper Collaboration Policy: http://www.lehigh.edu/~ejk0/cheating.html.

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities:
If you have a disability for which you are or may be requesting accommodations, please contact both your instructor and the Office of Academic Support Services, University Center C212 (610-758-4152) as early as possible in the semester. You must have documentation from the Academic Support Services office before accommodations can be granted.
