As the semester progresses, you will
be informed about your grade.
You are reminded about the College policy about academic misconduct http://www.engineering.uiowa.edu/current-students/academic-misconduct.html, and plagiarism at http://www.engineering.uiowa.edu/~ctc/docs/ctc_guides/ctc_guide_avoiding_plagiarism.html.
This course is given by the College of Engineering. This means that class policies on matters such as requirements, grading, and sanctions for academic dishonesty are governed by the College of Engineering. Students wishing to add or drop this course after the official deadline must receive the approval of the Dean of the College of Engineering. Details of the University policy of cross enrollments may be found at: http://www.uiowa.edu/~provost/deos/crossenroll.doc
|Attendance and Class Participation: Attendance is very important.
It is your chance to clarify the text material and homework questions, get
information not covered in the text, and take
advantage of bonus quizzes. You are expected to come prepared to
class by completing homework and readings, and to participate in meaningful
discussions in class. If you must miss a class, be sure to let the
instructor know and check with a classmate to get any notes, handouts or
other information you may have missed.
Examinations: There will be two examinations that may contain problem solving, fill in the blank, multiple choice and true/false questions. Exams are not comprehensive. Please let the instructor know if you can not make the exam date and time. These exams are difficult and the student is expected to read and study the assignments, attend lectures, and ask questions.
Homework: For full credit on homework, you should clearly demonstrate your knowledge about the question; don't simply give a yes or no answer; this means you may need to give a short explanation to justify your answer, show your work, and state any appropriate assumptions. In some cases, it may be appropriate to cite the reference where you found certain data or information you used in your solution.
You are expected to do your own homework! If you copy someone else's homework or let someone copy yours, you can expect to get a zero for the entire day's assignment and possibly face more serious disciplinary action (see Academic Misconduct Standard for specific policy details). The same policy Grading applies to cheating on quizzes or exams. Be a professional; do your own work.
Homework (unless otherwise noted) is due on Mondays. Late homework will be corrected, but will result in reduced credit. Homework turned in by Wednesday of the same week will be graded at 50% of the corrected score. Homework turned in after Wednesday of the same week will receive a zero credit.
Some homework is collected, some is put into ICON, and some will be submitted electronically. The homework link provides the method and due date.
Bonus Quizzes: Bonus points will be given for unannounced quizzes during classes. In general, they will cover material from the readings, presented during class, or in your homework. Since the bonus quizzes are not part of the basic course requirement, they cannot be made up, if missed. So, again, it is wise to attend regularly and pay attention in class.
Project: You will be assigned a robotic project that you will work on as a team. You will investigate the problem and provide a recommendation (to management). A project report and presentation are required. More information about this project will be forthcoming on this website link.
