Secret Word


LabWhen the lab begins, I will give you a secret word that will open the current assignment. The idea is to prevent students from working on the activity ahead of time.

Submitting Lab Work

To make it easier for me to grade and organize your work, we will use a format for assignment filenames. The file name should include your last name, a comma, your first name, a dash, and then the name of the assignment.

«Last Name», «First Name» – «Activity».fprg

For example, if the assignment is called “Activity A” and the student’s name is Joe Gunchy, the file name should be:

Gunchy, Joe – Activity A.fprg

Then send the file to the following e-mail address.

Activity / Assignment Rules

  1. Discussion among students as to the general logic to solve a problem is allowed and encouraged. Likewise, I have no problem with students occasionally helping other students to find a particularly troublesome error in design or code.
  2. However, the design of an algorithm, and the coding of a program that implements that algorithm, must be the work of the student whose name appears on it. Do not cheat.
  3. Do not help others cheat. This means you cannot give your solution to another student or give them the pseudo-code on how to do it. For example, don't let students copy off your screen. In any case, both the student, that copied your solution, and you will receive a zero.
  4. Unless otherwise instructed (as, for example, team projects), all assignments are to be entirely your own work.
  5. You only can submit one solution - so make sure its correct!
