Obtaining additional assistance
Please use the discussion forum in PIAZZA to ask questions. The fastest way to get answers to your questions about the course is by asking them during lecture, discussion section, and office hours. You can also ask questions by sending email to the instructor and the TA(s). We will try to respond to your questions as quickly as possible, but sometimes a prompt response may not always be possible.
Any students who feel that they may need additional accommodation due to a disability should contact the instructor privately to discuss these specific needs. Also, contact the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) at (858) 534-4382 as soon as possible to better ensure that such accommodations, such as alternative test-taking environments or note-taking services, are implemented in a timely fashion.
The final grade for this course will be assigned as following:
- Homeworks (4) 5% each
- Midterm 30%
- Final 50%
The midterm exam will take place in WLH2204 on 08/18/2016 from 11.00am to 11.50am.
After that we will continue with lecture until 1.50pm.
The final exam will take place on 09/03/2016 from 11.30am to 2.29pm.
Homeworks will be assigned to help prepare students for exams.
Students are required to solve them individually and turn
them into TED prior to the beginning of the class.
As students in this offering of CSE 140, you are expected to know and abide by the UCSD Policy on Integrity of Scholarship (as described in the Student Conduct Code in the UCSD General Catalog), the Jacobs School of Engineering Student Honor Code, and the course policy described here. Please take a few moments to read and review these policies.
Homework must be completed individually. All exams and quizzes are individual effort. Dishonest behavior will not be tolerated during an exam. Since you are expected to complete all homework and exams by yourself, you will be held responsible even if you plagiarize only a small portion of someone else's work. Furthermore, providing your work for others to copy is also considered as academic dishonesty.
Any student violating UCSD's Academic Dishonesty or UCSD's Student Conduct policies will earn an 'F' in the course and will be reported to their college Dean for administrative processing. Committing acts that violate Student Conduct policies that result in course disruption are cause for suspension or dismissal from UCSD.
