# Course Organization and Policies

#### Attendance

Attendance at lectures is **mandatory**. Do not enroll in CS355
if you are taking another course that meets at the same time as
CS355.

#### Grading

Each of the five problem sets is worth 20% of your grade. There is no midterm or final exam.

#### Problem Sets

You must use LaTeX to write up your problem sets using the provided template. All problem sets are due at 5pm on the listed Friday, every two weeks. We will post the problem sets at least two weeks before their due date.

**Problem Set Submission**: You must submit your problem set via Gradescope. Please
use course code **M2BJ5P** to sign up. Note that Gradescope requires that the solution
to each problem starts on a **new page**.

**Collaboration Policy**: You may discuss the problem sets with other students and
you may work together to come up with solutions to the problems. If you do so,
you must list the name of your collaborators on the first page of your
submission. Each student must write up her/his problem set independently.

You may use the Boneh-Shoup textbook, or any other textbook
of your choosing as a reference. If you use a result from a textbook in the course
of solving a problem, please **cite** the textbook in your write-up.
Please do not search the Internet for answers to problem-set problems.

If you have questions about these policies, please just ask us.

**Late Submissions**: You get **three “late days”** in total during the quarter.
You may use a late day to submit a problem set after the deadline. You will
have to deliver the late submission to via Gradescope. You can use at most
three late days for any single assignment, and you may only use late days in
one-day increments (no partial late days).

If you submit an assignment more than 72 hours after the deadline, or
if you submit an assignment late after running out of late days, you will
receive **no credit** for the submission.
Please submit your assignments on time and save your late days for
extraordinary situations.
