A project is optional and can add no more than 20 points to the raw score used in computing your final average. This means that it only can count as much as two standard homework problems, so a project should not be too elaborate.
A project should be the work of only one person and should involve some topic relevant to the course.
If a project is a computer program, then
The completed project must be delivered to me by Friday of the last
full week of classes. Please note that the Va Tech e-mail server
will not allow you to send exe files. The files must be delivered
in person to my office. If you do a computer program, it will be
best to load it on a laptop and run it in my office.
