You have many options to get help for this class:
Data Science Discovery is the intersection of statistics, computation, and real-world relevance. As a project-driven course, students perform hands-on-analysis of real-world datasets to analyze and discover the impact of the data. Throughout each experience, students reflect on the social issues surrounding data analysis such as privacy and design. Same as CS 107 and IS 107.
Course notes will be provided, which, in addition to notes taken by students during class are sufficient.
No official prerequisite. But you should be comfortable with college algebra.
Grades are not curved or adjusted.
If you feel your homework or exam was graded incorrectly, you have one week from the date it was returned to discuss it with the instructor. After one week, grading is final except for exceptional circumstances. You may not simply ask for a re-grade, but instead must justify to the staff why the grading was done incorrectly. Also, by disputing any grading, you agree to allow the instructor to review the entire homework or exam for other errors missed during grading.
You are expected to watch all lecture videos and read lecture notes. Failure to do so may not have a direct effect on your course grade, but will likely have a significant indirect effect. Any known or potential extracurricular conflicts should be discussed in person with the instructor during the first week of classes, or as soon as they arise.
The official University of Illinois policy related to academic integrity can be found in Article 1, Part 4 of the Student Code. Section 1-402 in particular outlines behavior which is considered an infraction of academic integrity. These sections of the Student Code will be upheld in this course. Any violations will be dealt with in a swift, fair and strict manner. Homework assignments are meant to be learning experiences. You may discuss the exercises with other students, but you must write-up the solutions on your own. In short, do not cheat, it is not worth the risk. You are more likely to get caught than you believe. If you think you may be operating in a grey area, you most likely are.
To obtain disability-related academic adjustments or auxiliary aids, students with disabilities must contact the course instructor and the Disability Resources and Educational Services (DRES) as soon as possible. To contact DRES, you may visit 1207 S. Oak St., Champaign, call 217-333-4603, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or go to the DRES website.
The instructor reserves the right to make any changes she considers academically advisable. Such changes, if any, will be announced on Compass and Campuswire. Please note that it is your responsibility to attend the class and keep track of the proceedings.
