|Homework & Labs.......25%||93%.....A-||80%.....C+|
Homework assignments can be handwritten. However, neatness and good organization are required. All intermediate calculations must be shown. All source code (or formulas for spreadsheets) must be submitted in with all computer programming assignments. Please note that homework assignments will not receive full credit unless presented neatly and in an organized format, even if the calculations and content are completely correct. If you submit homework by email, the name of the file(s) must be like this : BIE 5300, 2004, HW01, YourName where "YourName" is your name (could be just your last name), and HW01 means "Homework assignment #1." The extension on the filename will depend on what kind of file it is. If you don't follow this file-naming convention, you will have to resubmit it.
Several unannounced quizzes will be given during the first five minutes of class time on random days of scheduled class. These are designed to encourage you to stay up-to-date on the reading assignments in the textbook, lecture notes, and other references.
All assignments are due at the beginning of class on the date assigned by the Instructor. Late work will be penalized 10% per day.
Students are encouraged to discuss concepts and problems with one another or in groups. However, when it comes time to solve a homework problem, or to write a computer program, each student must work independently.
All work, including homework, computer programs, and examinations are to be the student's own original work. No plagiarism of published material or other student's (former or current) work will be allowed. Cheating, falsification, plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty are violations of USU policy and can result in grade adjustment, probation, suspension, or expulsion from the university. Please read USU's policy Academic Honesty .
Please arrive in class on time and turn off all cell phones and beepers during class.
