CPS721 final exam: MAC Arena, on Wedn, Dec 13, from 3-5:30pm.
The CPS721 labs/tutorials start on Monday, September 11. The labs are mandatory.
You can attend a lab only with your section. No transfers between sections are possible. Usually, each lab/tutorial includes a mini-lecture and a quiz. Solve quizzes in a small group: 2 or 3 students at most. Each student must write by his/her hand the first name, the last name and the student number on the top of the page with a solution to a quiz. Larger groups are not allowed. Your assignment group can be different from your lab group. Read the rules about labs in the course management form.
How to get started with Prolog?
First, read handouts
related to the first assignment. If you still experience
difficulties after that, or you are not sure how to use
ECLiPSe Prolog installed in labs, then send email to a TA
and make an appointment. The TA can guide you through the basic steps
of writing and compiling Prolog programs.
Visit this Web page to download an open source version of ECLiPSe Prolog (release 6) Note that a big green "Download" button on that Web page is linked to a Linux release that runs only on Linux machines. Go to " Browse all files" (next to a big green button) and download a release 6 for your operating system at home. Also, you can download the most recent ECLiPSe Prolog release for several operating systems from this Web page. No help can be provided with installation of this software on home computers. If you experience difficulties, use this software in CS labs.
If you have questions related to cps721, you can send email both to a TA and to the instructor. One of us will reply you and post an answer to your question on a Web page. Before you email your question, please check posted answers to previously received questions to make sure that your question has not already been answered.
an electronic copy of transparencies from class will be posted on
my.ryerson.ca This electronic copy is provided exclusively for
educational purposes, but slides should not be redistributed or posted
Revisions: If you would like to submit a revised copy of your assignment, then simply re-submit your assignment on D2L again. The same group representative must submit a revised version from the group. A new copy of your assignment will override the old copy. You can submit new versions as many times as you like and you do not need to inform anyone about this. Don't ask your team members to submit your assignment, because TA will be confused which version to mark: only one person from a group should submit different revisions of the assignment.
If a hard copy of the assignment is required, but your assignment is late,
then to hand in the printout you can give it in person to a secretary
at the CS reception and ask her to put a stamp on your assignment
to confirm that you handed in your assignment in time.
Send email to the TA who is responsible for marking this assignment:
inform that a hard copy of your assignment is available from the front desk.
An electronic copy must be submitted on my.ryerson.ca into a specified
folder. No assignments are accepted if more than 24 hours late.
Late assignments are penalized according to the policy
specified in the course management form.
