The top 16 wolves for each section, along with the tournament results for each section, are posted as text files. The files were renamed to use numbers instead of student IDs to protect student privacy. If you want to challenge the winning wolves, grab the newest version of the Critter Tournament code and run the GUI, then click the Load from Web button to get a list of all wolves.

    NOTE: No assignments may be turned in after Sunday, December 10 at 11:59pm. Also, unused late days will not be converted into extra points or any other reward. Please take this into consideration when planning how to use your remaining late days.

  • (Thu Nov 9) Midterm curve: We have decided to add +7 points to each student's midterm score to account for the difficulty of question #7. This +7 cannot cause a score to exceed 100; for example, if your original score was 96, your curved score is now 100. See the discussion board thread named "Midterm" for a description about the reasoning behind the decision.
