There is no single required text for the
course. However, readings will be assigned from two different texts,
and I would strongly suggest following the readings from one or both.
- There will be approximately four written assignments; please
see the syllabus for an exact schedule. Some of the problems will
be difficult, and it will often be helpful to discuss them with
others. Feel free to form study groups. However, the idea is for
everyone to understand the problems and experience working through
the solutions, so you may not simply "give" a solution to
another classmate. In particular, each student must write
up his or her own homework solutions and must not read or
copy the solutions of others. If you work with others on a
problem, you must note with whom you discussed the
problem at the beginning of your solution write-up.
- Late homework policy: Homework is due at the
beginning of class on the announced due date. You will be
granted one homework extension of four calendar days, to be used
at your discretion, no questions asked. This policy does not apply
to projects. After the first late assignment, unexcused late
assignments will be penalized 20% per calendar day
late. I normally will not accept assignments after the date on
which the following assignment is due or after the solutions have
been handed out, whichever comes first. If you will have a valid
reason for turning in an assignment late, please see me
in advance to obtain full-credit.
- There will be approximately three projects. You will have
approximately eight to ten days to complete each project.
- Graduate students will be responsible for a term project that will consist
of either an in-class presentation on a recent topic in IR or an additional
project, at the discretion of the student.
- Undergraduate Students:
- Homeworks - 40%
- Projects - 60%
- Graduate Students:
- Homeworks - 40%
- Projects - 45%
- Term Project - 15%
- All work submitted for credit must be your own.
- You may discuss the homework problems or projects with your
classmates, the TA, and the instructor. You must
acknowledge the people with whom you discussed your work, and you
must write up your own solutions. Any written sources used (apart
from the text) must also be acknowledged; however, you
may not consult any solutions from previous years'
assignments whether they are student or faculty generated.
- Please ask if you have any questions about academic honesty as
it applies to IS4200/CS6200.
