Homework and programming assignments

Mini term papers
- Over the course of the quarter, you are also responsible for writing three
3-5 page term papers; each is worth 10% of the grade.
- The first one is due no later than January 25th.
- The second one is due no later than February 22nd.
- The third one is due no later than March 7th.
- We will post some possible topics, and you may negotiate your own with the
instructor; these topics are not required to be chosen from topics we cover
in class; indeed, topics beyond those covered in class are especially
appreciated. The papers will be graded on accuracy and clarity.
- In general, we expect these to be based on a reading of 2-3 papers on a
specific topic in programming languages.
- Note: You may do up to two of these papers in pairs (the pairs can change
from paper to paper, if you wish), doing a minimum of one of them by
yourself. If you work in pairs, both people will receive the same
Take-home final exam
- On Wednesday March 8, we will make a take-home final exam (worth 20% of
the final grade) available on the web. You can choose any consecutive
3-hour period to do the exam. It is due by 11:59PM PST on Sunday March
12, 2000. We will provide instructions for electronic turn-in.
