Instructor: Peter Stone
Department of Computer Sciences
Tuesday, Thursday 12:30-1:45pm
The class is currently officially full. The class will work best with fewer rather than more people since time with the robots will be a constraint. However, I will do my best to accomodate all interested students who are serious about putting in the required effort on this course. If you are unable to register, please come to the first class meeting. At that point, I will see how many people are interested and I'll decide how to proceed (probably some registered students will drop the class by then as well). At this point, I cannot guarantee permission to register to anyone. If I do give you permission to register, you will need to go see Katherine Utz or Gloria Ramirez in TAY 2.114 after I have sent them your name.

Grades will be based onReading, written, and programming assignments will be updated on the assignments page. Readings and exercises will be posted by the Tuesday before they are due (1 week in advance).
Associated with most readings will be an assignment to send us a concise, well-thought-out, coherent written responses by email to the instructor and the TA. The email should be in plain ascii text in the body of the email (not an attachment). Please use the subject line "class readings for [due date]". The responses should be free form. Credit will be based on evidence that you have done the readings carefully. Acceptable responses include (but are not limited to):These responses will be graded on a 10-point scale and graded mostly on coherence. Responses will be due by 10pm on Monday. Responses received between then and 11a.m. on Tuesday will be deducted 1 point (for a maximum score of 9). Responses received between then and 11a.m. on Thursday will be deducted 2 points (for a maximum score of 8). Responses received after that will be deducted 4 points (for a maximum score of 6).
These deadlines are designed both to encourage you to do the readings before class and also to allow us to incorporate some of your responses into the class discussions.
