CPSC 101 Lab Syllabus
Fall 2016

Lab Purpose and Procedure

The purpose of this lab is to give you practice programming small programs related to the constructs and conceptual ideas covered in lecture. To get the most out of your lab experience, you should always feel free to ask your lab instructors any questions you may have.

The lab homepage is your central repository for course resources, as well as the listing of laboratory assignments.

You are encouraged to read through the lab assignment (located at the link at the top of the lab homepage) BEFORE coming to lab, so that you have a general idea of what will be covered.

Academic Integrity

As members of the Clemson University community, we have inherited Thomas Green Clemson's vision of this institution as a "high seminary of learning." Fundamental to this vision is a mutual commitment to truthfulness, honor, and responsibility, without which we cannot earn the trust and respect of others. Furthermore, we recognize that academic dishonesty detracts from the value of a Clemson degree. Therefore, we shall not tolerate lying, cheating, or stealing in any form.

See: Clemson University's Academic Integrity Policy

If copying is detected, all parties will be reported to the course instructor and the appropriate action taken. The minimum penalty for cheating on a lab assignment will be a zero for the lab in question.

Opportunities for Academic Assistance

If you encounter problems or difficulty with this course, there are several places that you can go to get help and assistance.
  1. Speak to your TA or professor about the difficulty you are having. Many times a brief discussion will clarify things enough to get you back on track.

  2. OFFICE HOURS: Office hours will probably be added this semester and will be listed in the table above. Be aware that these office hours are not intended to be a replacement time slot for the day's lab work where you can go early and ask questions the entire hour trying to get the lab done. It is intended to be where you can go for general questions or conceptual questions about the lecture material, lecture assignments, or lab assignments. You will have an opportunity to start the lab assignment early, and to work on the lab assignment and ask questions during your lab period.

    Make sure to email the ta listed next to the posted office hour to let him/her know that you plan on coming for help so he/she can make sure to be there. If nobody emails, then they will assume nobody is coming and may or may not be there.

  3. TUTORING: If the office hours available to you do not fit your schedule, there is also a tutor through the Academic Success Center. The tutor for this semester is Cecilia Prentice. She will be available at the following times in room 301 of the Academic Success Center:

Policies and Procedures

Attendance Policy: Attendance to every lab is REQUIRED even if you have the lab work completed and submitted before your scheduled lab time. If you submit your work but do not show up for lab, there will be a deduction of 50 points for not attending the lab session. There may be further deductions on top of that if your program does not work, or if there are formatting issues, if it does not compile, etc. If you know ahead of time that you are not able to make it to your scheduled lab time, contact your ta to discuss your situation.
