CECS 5260, Computer Graphics, although not a required prerequisite, is a valuable course to take prior to taking this course.
Course Topics and Objectives:
A total of 100 points for the course will be allocated as follows:
Letter grades will be the higher grade resulting from the following two standards:
Late homework will lose 5 points each week it is late. Any assignments not turned in by the last class meeting will be assigned a grade of zero, unless the student has made prior arrangements with the instructor.
Homework that fails to function will be assigned a grade of 0. Homework that does function but that outputs incorrect answers for the given data set or does not meet the specification of the assignment will receive 50% of the assignment points.
Students may elect to correct homework and resubmit for a re-grade. A student may resubmit work two times. Resubmitted homework when corrected and functional will count 80% of the original points.
Students are encouraged to carefully check the logic and the output of their programs before submitting them for review and grading.
