Important Tufts Policies and Resources
The two midterm exams and the final exam will include questions similar to those included on homework
assignments or recitation problems and will draw on material covered in lecture and/or in the
reading. Collaboration is not allowed on examinations!
Collaboration and Integrity
Although you may discuss these problems in the preliminary stages with others, submitted work should be done individually. If you have any discussions with others, whether students, friends, TAs or faculty, relative to a homework problem or if you gain information from a written source other than your own notes from lecture or the textbook for the course, you are expected to identify your collaborator/source.
How to write proofs:
We prepared a short summary containing the key points on how to write proofs, also available on Piazza. In addition to our guide, there are various materials in the web if you want to check out. We encourage you to look around for those resources whenever you have time in the beginning of the semester.
How to submit homework
Late homework policy:
There will be a short project partway through the semester to code an algorithm.
Your final grade will be based on the assignments, midterm and final exams.
Overall grade = 30%(Homework) + 5%(Participation/Quizzes) + 5%(Project) + 2x20%(per midterm exam) + 20%(Final exam)
