Bi-Weekly Course Assignments
Every two weeks, read file WhatToDoWeeksXand(X+1).pdf under Discussion Board|WeeksXand(X+1) (X will be replaced by a number) to see which tasks you need to finish for the two weeks. The bi-weekly assignments will cover reading assignments, discussion questions and project assignments. The bi-weekly course assignments will be posted on the Sunday of the first week of the period. Unless otherwise specified, all the tasks specified in a course assignment must be completed within the same two-week period and submitted by the Sunday of the second week of the period. A one-hour open-book online quiz will be conducted on the Friday of the second week of each period, from 8pm to 9pm , through the Blackboard to check your understanding of the fundamental concepts and practices covered by the assignments for the two-week period.
The submission deadline will be strictly enforced. Each working day after the submission deadline would incur a 10% penalty on the assignment's grade. All files for a period's assignments should be zipped into a single file and submitted by attaching the solution zip file in a public reply message to the proper assignment thread in the Discussion Board .
Participating in Course Discussions
Every two weeks the instructor may post one or more questions in Pace Blackboard Discussion Board ( Discussion Board|WeeksXand(X+1) ). Students will conduct discussion on the posted questions by replying to the questions in the Discussion Board within two weeks from the posting of the questions. You can also comment on other student's responses. You can get credit by asking questions and help answering questions. A grade will be assigned in each two-week period to each student based on the student's number and quality of participation in the Discussion Board . All postings must be formal with proper syntax and style, with citations to textbook pages or class notes to back up the arguments.
