Mr. DW’s Contact Info

  • email:
  • Office Hours: M-F 2:30 - 2:50
  • Office Hours protocol:
    • Make your presence known in the 301_dw channel on the dojo rc
    • Wait in that channel to be called.
    • When called, join the office hours zoom.

Your Responsibilities:

  1. Be a good human being!
    • Treat each other (and me) with respect and kindness.
    • Take care of the classroom and the equipment contained within.
    • Be courteous to your classmates.
  2. Come to class!
    • “80% of success is showing up.”
    • If you’re not here, you can’t learn, and you can’t work with your classmates.
    • If you are absent or late, have a note ready.
  3. Do the work!
    • In this class you will make a graphics engine. Each assignment is a continuation on the previous one.
    • There will be about 13 assignments over the course of the semester, missing one can have a large impact on your grade.
    • When a new assignment is posted, solutions to the previous one will also be posted, to ensure that no one gets stuck along the way.
    • Once a solution is posted, late assignments will not be accepted.
    • You cannot submit all missed work at the end of the semester or marking period and expect to get credit.
    • These assignments will form the bulk of your grade, THERE ARE NO TESTS.
    • You may use any language for the work, as long as you get it approved by me. The source files I provide will be in c and python.
    • Submit your own work. Anyone caught plagiarizing will receive a 0 for the assignment along with further disciplinary action as required by school policy (Check out How to compsci at stuy if you need a refresher on academic dishonesty).
  4. The only way to fail this class is to violate the previous 2 points (I cannot give poor grades for not being a good human being, but there are much larger repercussions for failing in that area that will last much longer than a high school class grade).

My Responsibilities:

  1. Be a good human being.
  2. Create a class environment that is welcoming and conducive to learning.
  3. Teach you something about computer graphics.
