Students may work together in study groups but all assignments must be completed individually. Homework will be due in class on the designated date. No late homework will be accepted unless prior notification and arrangements are made. The course will have a final computer vision term project. You will be required to submit a project report in the form of a conference styled manuscript and make a presentation.


The gradebook is available through UNLV Webcampus [link].
