For this course, unless otherwise explicitly stated, all work that is submitted for grading must be authored entirely by you! Under no circumstance may there be an exchange of a program (orally, written or electronic) with another student. This will be strictly enforced. A zero on an assignment is better than an "F" in the course!
Communication with Instructor
EMAIL - by far your best alternative! For immediate response Yahoo IM: jackielredmond Skype : jackielhorton PhoneMail - OK when I'm on campus, but I don't always check it when I'm off campus. Course Bulletin Board - I don't receive notification if something is posted to the bulletin board, so feel free to drop me an email if I don't response promptly In person - if you're nearby, feel free to stop in.
