CSE131X Individual Curriculum Plan


How this contract works: Meet with your instructor individually to discuss your background, AP scores and/or placement exam. Your instructor will initial those projects for which you will be given credit on the basis of your prior background, and circle projects that you are required to do in CSE131X. In other words, the circled optional extensions will be treated as if they were in the required projects column for the purposes of the grading guidelines. You and your instructor will each keep a copy of this contract after signing it.

NOTE: You are responsible for all quizzes for required modules, even if you have been given credit for the required project for that module.

Quiz dates and lab assignment due dates are listed on the course calendar. Quiz numbers and lab assignment numbers correspond to module numbers. For example "Quiz 1" is the quiz for Module 1. See the late policy for more information about deadlines.

Your course grade depends upon the number of modules (and optional module extensions) that you successfully complete, including those for which you have been given credit based on your prior background.

If you have any questions or concerns about the structure of the course, feel free to ask.
