Catalog Description: Basic concepts of programming languages, including abstraction mechanisms, types, and scoping. Detailed study of several different programming paradigms, such as functional, object-oriented, and logic programming. No credit if CSE 413 has been taken.

Prerequisite: CSE 143

Credits: 4

Grading: Homework (programming), Midterm, Final. Overall weights very roughly: HW 55%, midterm 15%, final 30%.

Late Policy: Papers and/or electronic turnins due at start of class on the due date. Barring major emergencies, the deadline is strict. Electronic turnins will be disabled promptly. However, you may have 3 "late days", total, spread over all assignments. (In 24-hour chunks, i.e., turnin one minute late uses 1 of your 3 days. I'd suggest you hoard them in case you really get stuck late in the quarter. After the normal electronic turnin shuts off, you can use the late electronic turnin area.)

Extra Credit: Some assignments will include "extra credit" sections. These will enrich your understanding of the material, but at a low points per hour ratio. Do them for the glory, not the points, and don't even think about starting the extra credit portion until the main problems are complete.

Collaboration: Homeworks are all individual, not group, exercises. Discussing them with others is fine, but you must produce your own homework solutions. Follow the "Gilligan's Island Rule": if you discuss the assignment with someone else, don't keep any notes (paper or electronic) from the discussion, then go watch 30+ minutes of mind-numbing TV (Gilligan's Island reruns especially recommended) before you continue work on the homework by yourself. If in any doubt about whether your activities cross allowable boundaries, tell us before, not after, you turn in your assignment.
