- Grades will be computed as follows:

35% Final Exam
One goal of this course is to encourage discussion of the issues in computer networks and distributed systems among all of class members. As such, students are encouraged to ask questions, point out weaknesses, and make observations during the lecture. Students are also encouraged to participate on piazza in helping one another to understand the material. I reserve the right to provide extra points to those students who distinguish themselves in this respect, either in class or online
There will be two examinations in this course. The exams will be closed book, closed notes (for the final, you will be allowed one sheet of 8.5x11 paper for notes) will strss both conceptual understanding. The final will be comprehensive covering material from the entire course.
All assignments are due on the date and time specified on the assignment. Each student has a total of SEVEN twenty-four hour extensions ("late days") they may use throughout the quarter. Late days can only be used in twenty-four hour increments from an assignment's due date. For assignments done in pairs, late days will be charged to both students in the pair. No additional extensions will be given for any reason. Once all late days have been used up, late assignments will not be accepted.
Assignments can be done singly or in groups of two. Groups will share the same grade no matter who did what.
