This class is intense. There is a lot of new material, and there are four large programming projects, two homeworks, and a final. This class is also a lot of fun, as anyone who has taken it can tell you.
The class is structured so that you can
One of the reasons that computer graphics is an exciting field is that it touches on many many disciplines in new and interesting ways. Your job is to learn the basics and explore some of the frontiers.
So, with that exciting speech in mind, the grading plan is:
Extra Credit suggestions will be available on the projects. These will be fairly open-ended and are intended to give you a chance to pursue your interests over and above the basics of the class.
Your scores on the various graded tasks in the class will be available over the web through your MyUW account. You need your UWNetID and password in order to get access. To configure MyUW, do the following.
You will have approximately two weeks for each project.
Projects will be graded during in-person sessions with one of the TAs on the day that the project is due. During the grading session, a TA will run the project to make sure that it conforms to the guidelines. The TA will then quiz individual members of the team to determine how well they understand the structure of the code, the design trade-offs, and the implemented algorithms. One grade will be assigned for all members of the team for the project's implementation. Separate grades will be recorded for each team member's "knowledge of the project." Beyond the required extensions to the base project, you are strongly encouraged to attempt bells and whistles, which translate into (a bounded number of) extra credit points.
In addition, for each project both team members will be required to create an artifact, a final polished example (e.g., an image or model) demonstrating your application, hopefully of some artistic merit. Extra credit will be given for the nicest artifacts, as determined by class vote.
