Weeks 6-8: A survey of graph theory. Weeks 9-10: Trees, applications, and algorithms. Final Exam: A cumulative final will be given during finals week. This exam requires a proctor. Weekly homework will be assigned and a few selected problems along with one problem similar, but not identical, will be required to be scanned (or typed) and submitted at the end of each week either through blackboard or via e-mail, save the midterm week, starting week 2. Blackboard -? This course will be delivered via Blackboard, your online learning community, where you will interact with your classmates and with me.
Within he course Blackboard site you will access the learning materials, tutorials, and syllabus; discuss issues; submit assignments; take quizzes; email other students and the instructor; participate in online activities; and display your projects.

Exam Policies -? Preparing a make-up exam requires a significant effort. Consequently, make-up exams will not routinely be given. Makeup exams will be given only for missed exams excused in advance by the instructor. For missed exams that can be anticipated ahead of exam time, advance permission from the instructor to miss the exam will be necessary. Excused absences will not be given for airline reservations, routine illness (colds, flu, stomach aches), or other common ailments. Excused absences will generally not be given after the absence has occurred, except under very unusual circumstances.Re-grades of exams will be performed when there is an error and the student requests it.
All requests for re-grading must be made within 3 class days of the day the exam is returned. After that period of time, grades will be fixed and will not be changed. Incomplete Take this course only if you plan to finish it in a timely manner (during this term). I assign an “l” or incomplete only when there is a strong and compelling case for doing so (e. G. , health reasons, military commitment). I will not consider assigning an incomplete unless the individual has completed over 75% of the course tasks (e.
. , most of the homework and at least the midterm). Please note that students receiving incomplete are subject to assignment weight reduction (and consequently may not be eligible for A or A- grades) because some of their work will be submitted late. Statement Regarding Students with Disabilities: Accommodations are collaborative efforts between students, faculty and Disability Access Services (DADS) with accommodations approved through DADS are responsible for contacting the faculty member in charge of the course prior to or during the first week of the term to discuss accommodations.Students who believe they are eligible for accommodations but who have not yet obtained approval through DADS should contact DADS immediately at 541 -737-4098. Expectations for Student Conduct: Student conduct is governed by the university’s policies, as explained in the Office of Student Conduct: information and regulations. In an academic community, students and faculty, and staff each have responsibility for maintaining an appropriate learning environment, whether online or in the classroom.
Students, faculty, and staff eave the responsibility to treat each other with understanding, dignity and respect.Disruption of teaching, administration, research, and other institutional activities is prohibited by Oregon Administrative Rule 576-015-0015 (1 ) and (2) and is subject to sanctions under university policies, OSI Office of Student Conduct. Academic Integrity -? Students are expected to comply with all regulations retaining to academic honesty, defined as: An intentional act of deception in which a student seeks to claim credit for the work or effort of another person or uses unauthorized materials or fabricated information in any academic work.For further information, visit Avoiding Academic Dishonesty, or contact the office of Student Conduct and Mediation at 541-737-3656. Conduct in this online classroom -? Students are expected to conduct themselves in the course (e.
