due at the beginning of class on the specified date. In addition, copies of assignments and handouts
will also be available on the CS 219 home page.

Two tests and final exam will be given. Each test will be somewhat comprehensive, but will
emphasize material covered since the last test. Tests will be announced two or three class days in
advance. There will be NO MAKEUPS for missed tests.

No extra credit home works will be given. No make-up tests will be given. Exams will last for the full
class period. All exams are closed book and closed notes. Late assignment submissions WILL NOT
be accepted. All homework, material presented in class, and chapters covered in the book are
examinable.

It is suggested that upon completion of an assignment you make two copies of it (one to hand in, one to
keep for your own reference). Graded assignments will be returned to you as soon as possible. It is
you're responsibility to check the grade summaries for posting errors.

Assignments may not be shared. Under no circumstances should you "work with" anyone else in the
class on assignments!! Cheating will result in a failure in the class and letter to the student's major
department.

finding books and articles, successful search strategies, or Internet research. Check out the schedule at

Religious Holidays
As a general rule, a student missing a class or laboratory assignment because of observance of a
religious holiday shall have the opportunity to make up missed work. Students must notify of
anticipated absences by the last day of late registration, to be assured of this opportunity.
Also, students who represent UNLV at any official extracurricular activity shall have the opportunity to
make up assignments, but the student must provide official written notification no less than one week
prior to the missed class(es).
