Class Participation

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, a midterm and a final, elivered in class. You will be able to bring one sheet of 8.5x11 paper to the exams with notes (must be readable without additional magnification) but not other resources are permited during the exams. The final will be comprehensive covering material from the entire course, but will be weighted towards the material after the midterm.


Assignments can be done singly or in groups of two. Groups will share the same grade no matter who did what. Pick your groups accordingly.
