Re: clarification?

Hi professor,
Could you help me get a breakdown of the marks allotted to homeworks and projects and exams? I think you mentioned in class today that the homework is about 5 points each and that the exam is worth 20 points. Could you also tell me approximately how many projects are left before the finals and how much the final would be worth?
Thank you so much!

The "default", as I announced at the beginning, is  20pts for all homeworks together; 35-40 for projects, and 40-45  for exams and 5-10 points for class/blog participation.

homeworks are typically worth 5pts each

projects are, on the average, worth 10 points each (bayes net project doesnt
involve coding and will probably have a little less weight than 10)

After the bayes net project, we will either have at least one more longer project (more likely; will be on first order logic) or
two B.N. like coding-light projects; haven't quite decided.

Hope this helps.


ps: I am broadcasting my answer as others might also be interested in it
