Other Information

  1. You are responsible for making your own groups. I trust you to choose group partners that you will work well with. With your submission, you need to clearly write down what each group member did. I consider it an important learning goal of this class that you will learn to work effectively in a team.
  2. You may use downloaded code in your assignments and projects. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. However, you need to clearly write out which parts were downloaded and from where, and also, what portions you have executed yourself.
