Computer Science 555 - Reading Report #1 -- Spring 2020

Due: Wednesday, February 12th 2020 , 11:00 p.m.


The report must be submitted by 11:00 p.m. on Wednesday February 12th. Students may receive an automatic extension of 48 hours total that may be applied across the four homework assignments. If you turn in one of your assignment 8 hours late, then you will only have 40 hours remaining in extensions to use on subsequent assignments. (In answer to questions I have received - since the research paper proposal is not graded, it can be turned in late without counting against the free late assignment allowance).

The report should be approximately 3 pages, or roughly 1200 to 1500 words.

GUIDELINE: This is a lot to cover in so few words - so our advice is to write a first pass at your answer that is longer, and then edit out material that is redundant or not to the point. The use of tables can be very effective in conveying your ideas in a small area, but the tables must be integrated with your textual discussion, and not the only item in your submission.
