## News

News concerning the class will be posted here.

An updated grade sheet is now available.  Please check to see if your grades look like they're correct.  The grade cutoffs that are shown on the right side are a current ballpark; not set in stone.

The final is cumulative. That means everything is fair game.  But the focus will be on the newer material. Use the course discussions and questions from the quizzes as a guide to reviewing the earlier material (and, of course, the specific readings for the earlier quizzes).

Here are the readings from the last chunk of the class.  This is just the material not covered on our previous quizzes.

Chapter 19: Skip 19.5, 19.6

Chapter 20: Read pages 637-645, and Section 20.9

Chapter 22: Skip 22.3 and 22.4

Chapter 25: Skip 25.5.2, 25.11, 25.12

### Assignment 4 (Optional)

The details of the first of the optional assignments has been posted. It is due on 12/21 by 5PM.  This is the simpler of the two and shouldn't take much to implement since it involves a similar approach to what we did in HW 2.

You can find a summary of your grades here.  The ID column is the last three digits of your student ID.  The "score so far" column is an equally weighted average of your HWs and quizzes.  For HW 1, the score is

60+(.12/yourWER)*40

That's 60 points for a working maxmatch  plus 40 points scaled to a WER of .12, which at some point was the second best WER.

The HW 2 score is similar with 60 points for a working probability-based solution and 40 points scaled to a .1 WER solution.

### Assignment 3

The details of the next assignment are posted.

Here are the relevant readings for next week's quiz.

Chapter 12: Skip 12.7.2, 12.8, and 12.9

Chapter 13: Skip 13.4.2, 13.4.3

Chapter 14: Skip 14.6.2, 14.8, 14.9, 14.10

Chapter 17: Skip 17.5, 17.6

Chapter 18: Skip 18.3.2, 18.4, 18.5, and 18.6

### HW 1: Late Test Set

If you handed in HW 1 after the due date, please submit (or resubmit) with this new test set.   Submit answers for both your maxmatch and your part 2 (improved solution) using this test set as...

<lastname>-hw1-part1-out-late.txt

<lastname>-hw1-part2-out-late.txt

Of course, submit your code and writeup as well if you haven't already done so.

### HW 2 Test Set

The test set for Assignment 2 is here.  If you have submitted your assignment please run your code (as is) on this set and send me the output as

<lastname>-assgn2-out.txt

As before, one segmentation per line, no hashes, no python lists etc.

### Fun with syntax

Take a look at this funny take on syntax and semantics and ambiguity.

### Assignment 2

The relevant details for Assignment 2 have been posted.  This is due on October 16.

### Old Exams

I've posted various old quizzes and exams from past semesters. Note the distribution and coverage of materials changes from year to year. So there may be stuff on these old quizzes that we haven't covered.

### HW 1 Test Set

The test set is now available. Don't do any further development on your system (or dictionary) after you retrieve them.  If you're running late getting the HW done, don't download these until you're actually ready to go.

### First Assignment
