Summary of group projects


Due dates

The due date and time for projects are noted on the class calendar. Projects will be accepted within one week of the due date and time for 50% credit.

Project grading

The group will post a single project report on the course homepages by the due date and time. The instructors will both grade the project and merge their grades. All members in each group will receive the same grade for the project. At the end of the course, each student will be asked to rate the overall participation (quantity and quality) of the other group members, and this will be used to form a small component of each individual student's grade.

Projects summary

There will be three projects: Note that the projects are not sequential -- you can work on two or even all three projects concurrently -- although the milestone deadlines are phased.

Group organization

Each project group should designate two people for each project (it is a good idea to rotate these responsibilities):

Web support

The class homepages have several facilities that should be helpful.
