INFO 150: A Mathematical Foundation for Informatics

Prof. Peter J. Haas

Fall, 2019

Course Requirements and Grading

Your grade in INFO 150 will be based on the following:

Academic Honesty Policy

The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM), the world's largest professional computing society, recently released an updated Code of Ethics, and with good reason. Given the dominant role of computer technology in our society, ethical lapses can have disasterous consequences. Ethical behavior begins here at UMass. The following discussion pertains to academic honesty from the perspective of this course.

All work submitted must be your own in presentation. How much outside help is allowed depends on the course component.

For more information about what constitutes academic dishonesty, please see the Dean of Students’ website for the general UMass academic honesty policy. Since students are expected to be familiar with this policy and the commonly accepted standards of academic integrity, ignorance of such standards is not normally sufficient evidence of lack of intent. You can take a quick online quiz to check your "academic integrity quotient (AIQ)".

Disability Statement

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is committed to making reasonable, effective and appropriate accommodations to meet the needs of students with disabilities and help create a barrier-free campus. If you are in need of accommodation for a documented disability, register with Disability Services to have an accommodation letter sent to Prof. Haas.
