Tips for success:
We encourage you to get together with course mates to discuss the material and practicals. You are welcome to discuss the home assignments with other students, discuss specific algorithms, properties of algorithms etc.; we ask only that you not look at any source code written by a different student, nor show your solution code to other students before session.
