CSEN 901 Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

Course Policies


  • You are expected to attend all class meetings—all lectures and all tutorials. You must attend at least 75% of the tutorials in order to be admitted to the final exam. You have attended a session only if you have attended with your designated group (according to your scheule) and you have arrived to class within the first fifteen minutes. In case you miss a class for some emergency situation, you are still responsible for any material presented, or announcements made, in class. Keep the phone numbers of at least two classmates handy.


  • Your grade in this course will be based on your scores in one midterm exam (25%), one final exam (40%), three project scores (20%), and your best four out of five quiz scores (15%). There will be weekly homework assignments, mostly pencil-and-paper style, although occasional small programming projects are also possible. Homeworks are designed to (i) give you practice in applying the concepts covered in class, (ii) give you a chance to assess the level of your understanding, and (iii) prepare you for the in-class quizzes. Although homework problems will not be submitted for grading, you are encouraged to discuss your solutions with your instructors.


  • Quizzes will be held in the tutorial. According to the course calendar, we will have six quizzes; the worst quiz grade will be dropped. There will be no makeup quizzes. If you miss a quiz, then it is going to be counted as your worst. See the course calendar for tentative quiz dates.


  • The work submitted for grading must be your own work. It is reasonable to discuss with others possible general approaches to problems. It is unreasonable to work together on a detailed solution, to copy a solution (whether from a colleague or an Internet or library resource), or to give away a solution. Such instances of academic dishonesty may result in zero credit for the work submitted and may result in an F in the course. Submitting work that is not your own work is considered academic dishonesty.


  • If you have a need for disability-related accommodations or services, please inform your instructor. Reasonable and effective accommodations and services will be provided to students if requests are made in a timely manner, with appropriate documentation, in accordance.
