Course StructureThere will be one required lecture each week. Readings will be assigned at the end of each lecture. There will be assignments and projects throughout the course. The due date will be specified on each given assignment. Assignments may consist of problems similar to those in the textbook, small (less than 500 lines of code) programs, and packet analysis using the Ethereal packet sniffer. Some assignments may be more difficult than others and therefore their respective weights towards the final grade will vary accordingly. Homework will be generally due right before class the day the assignments are due. The due dates for the assignments will be announced when the assignments are assigned. The submission method (i.e. electronic submission, paper submissions, the format, etc.) will be specified in each assignment. Late homework will not be accepted without the instructor's prior permission. Extensions are available only in the case of dire emergencies.
There is a final exam in this class, which wil be either in-class or take-home. No make-up exam will be scheduled. Class participation will be measured based on individual student's ability to answer questions asked during class over time as well as ask questions related to the material covered in the course. If you have a conflict with the exam date, you should not be taking this class without making prior arrangements with the instructor.
A class mailing list has been setup to facilitate communication with the class pertaining to questions, assignments, grades, changes in requirements etc. The class Web page is http://www.nyu.edu/classes/jcf/CSCI-GA.2262-001/. This page will have further links to pages with announcements, handouts, etc. Students are required to log in and check the page at least once a week to make sure they are up to date with any information pertaining to the course.
The Web site is the primary means of getting information outside of class. The mailing list will be used for urgent messages, such a updates and hints for the homeworks.
If you have any questions, issues that you want to discuss, or things that you would like to have clarified, please see the instructor as soon as possible.The final grade for the course will be determined as follows:
If you have any concerns about your grade or about the grading, please
feel free to see the instructor.
However, we do strongly encourage students to discuss the materials covered in class. It is also acceptable to help or receive help from other students concerning features of Windows, Linux, or the UNIX operating system, or any other application that you use. There is a fine line between discussion and cheating. If you feel uncertain about whether you are crossing the line feel free to discuss these issues with the instructor before you do so.
