News and Important Dates

Major deliverables:





Your grade in this course will be based on a series of design documents, reports, and presentations, in addition to the final project artifact itself. My goal is to spend a substantial amount of lecture time doing in-class problems, so class participation is also very important.

Academic (mis)conduct

Academic misconduct (also known as "cheating") is a very serious issue at Tufts. As a member of the University community, I am obligated to report any incidents. The consequences are painful for everyone involved. For more details, see the Tufts brochure on academic conduct:

The most common reason for cheating is becoming overwhelmed by the work. Every one of us has been in this situation, and we're more than willing to help you if you feel like you're in trouble. Please, please come to us before you get into a situation where you're tempted to take someone elses solution.
