CS11 C++ - Spring 2016-2017

Track Info

At this point, the CS11 C++ track will not be having class this term. Rather, lectures are provided so that students can cover the material as quickly as they prefer. Note that there are still due dates and late penalties in the class.

Contact-info and office hours for this track is as follows:

Please ask for help if you get stuck on any issue for more than 30 minutes to an hour! Also, if you have a question and you don't want to wait for office hours, feel free to email any or all of us for help.


Assignments are due one week after they are given. Assignments should be submitted via the csman website. If you need a csman account, or if you need to be added to the C++ course on csman, email Donnie.

Grading Policy

Every grade is assigned a numeric score from 0 to 3. The score values mean the following:

To pass CS11 C++, you must receive at least 75% of the total available points. For 8 assignments, you must have 18/24. For 7 assignments, you must have 15.5/21. This means it is definitely possible to complete the track without completing all assignments, but if you have any interest in being a TA, you need to complete all assignments.

Late Policy

Late submissions will be penalized 0.5 points per day past the due-date. The due-date is 12:00 noon on the day specified. For example, if you turn in your assignment at 2:00 pm, a 0.5 point penalty will be applied. If you turn in your assignment anytime the next day (up until 11:59am), the penalty is still 0.5 points. And so forth.

Resubmitting Your Work

If you want to increase your score on an assignment, you may rework and resubmit each assignment up to TWO times. This will give you an opportunity to increase the score on the assignment. (Late penalties are not removed by resubmitting.)

You cannot abuse the resubmission policy to avoid late penalties! If you turn in a substantially incomplete assignment before the due-date, it will not be counted; the first completed submission will dictate the date of submission.


All of your grades for the term are available on the csman website.

Collaboration Policy

General discussion about assignments is encouraged, but you must write all of your own code. Some assignments build on source-files that I will give you, but other than that, all other files that you work with and/or submit should be entirely your own work.

High-level discussions of implementations (e.g. drawing diagrams of data-structures, or pseudocode sketches of algorithms) are acceptable, but verbatim or near-verbatim copying of implementations is unacceptable, and will be considered an Honor Code violation.
