TAs: Xinyi Zhang , Daniela Correa, Enrique Alberto Rosales Ruiz, Amon Ge
Please contact them via Piazza or come to one of the labs.
TAs will be able to answer your questions regarding the assignments during the lab hours and may hold extra office hours prior to assignment deadlines.
To submit your programming assignment, please use handin.
Each programming assignment is due 23:59:59 pm on the day specified, measured by the handin. No late assignments accepted, except for the grace days:
Grace days: Each student may use up to 3 grace days per term. We will keep track of your grace days. Use these as you wish to help manage your time, but use them wisely. You can use all three on one assigment, or one day for each of three assignments. Grace days are counted as integers, i.e., if you are one hour late, that counts as one grace day. Weekends (Sat/Sun) do not count (so submittng an assigment on Monday instead of Friday counts as one day). Once your grace days are all used, late assignments will receive a grade of zero.
Grading: We will use "face-to-face grading," i.e., you will be required to demonstrate that you understand why your program works. You must be able to explain every single line you wrote! You must get a passing grade in assignments to pass the course.
While there is no required textbook for the course, you can find most of the material covered on the lectures in Foundations of 3D Computer Graphics by Steven J. Gortler, MIT Press, 2012, which you can get online for free. Get to know the book well, it might come in handy!
Missed work: Policy here.
Dropping: Because of the high demand for this course, the drop deadlines will be strictly enforced. No drop forms will be signed by the instructor after the first drop deadline. After that date, you will not be given permission to drop, and you will either have to complete the course or receive an "F" for the course at the end of the term. This policy has been adopted to encourage students to make a serious commitment to the course or to drop it early so that other students waiting to get into the course can register for it.
