Module Information - Policies

[ Correspondence | Notes and Handouts | Attendance | Late Submission | Plagiarism | Be Serious in Your Study ]


Information is disseminated to you mainly through this module website and the IVLE. It is your responsibility to check the IVLE regularly for announcements and module website for course materials. We will refrain from sending mass emails unless it is of grave urgency.

For queries on general matters, we prefer that you post them on the IVLE discussion forums. This would allow others -- staff, seniors and your fellow classmates -- to help answer your queries. Discussion can also be more lively and extensive in a forum than through private email exchange.

Please use emails only for private matters. Please be informed that if you send emails to us, we only recognise your OFFICAL email address, that is, address with domain @comp.nus.edu.sg or @nus.edu.sg, otherwise we would require authentication such as your name and matriculation number.

We will send emails only to your official email address at @nus.edu.sg. If you have set an auto-forwarding service to other external mail server, you must ensure that the mail server in use is reliable, otherwise emails from us may not reach you on time or even reach you at all.

If you have queries pertaining to your own tutorial group or lab group, please email your respective tutor or lab TA. Their email addresses are available on the
Staff page.

We reserve the right to publish our answers to your private queries to the class (on IVLE or email) if we feel that they are of interest and benefit to the class.

Notes and Handouts

To reduce wastage of papers, all course materials are available for download on this module website.


Your attendance will be monitored. Regular attendance at tutorials will also earn you some marks. If your attendance is irregular and you are not coping well with the module, you will be required to see your lecturer. We hope that this will not happen -- you should help yourself by consulting your lecturer or tutor the moment you face problems.

If you have a medical certificate for a missed class, you may submit it to your lecturer or tutor.

You should stick to your assigned tutorial group and lab group. Do not skip your own group to join another group, as your attendance will not be counted in such case.

Late Submission of Assignments

Submission deadline of lab assignments must be strictly adhered to and late submission without valid reason will not be accepted.


We permit and encourage healthy discussion among students. However, you must draw the line between discussion and plagiarism (copying of other's work or taking credit for a piece of work that is not original).

The university does not condone plagiarism. If detected, both the party who copied and the party who had permitted the copying will be penalised equally.

Please refer to Plagiarism site for more information.

Be Serious in Your Study

All these seemingly 'harsh' policies and rules are to be seen in the right light. In a small class, we do not need to spell these out explicitly as we can easily monitor the situation. However for a big class, we need these policies to maintain uniformity and fairness as much as we can, and to ensure the smooth running of the course. If everybody cooperates, your tutors will be relieved of many unnecessary administrative tasks and hence can devote more quality time on you.

However, this is not a one-way traffic. We welcome your comments and suggestions. Just drop us an email or pop by our offices for a chat. Our contacts are on the Staff page.
