The Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers free services to all
students during their undergraduate careers at Duke. Services include
Learning Consultations, Peer Tutoring and Study Groups, ADHD/LD
Coaching, Outreach Workshops, and more. Because learning is a process
unique to every individual, we work with each student to discover and
develop their own academic strategy for success at Duke. Contact the
ARC to schedule an appointment. Undergraduates in any year, studying
any discipline can benefit!

All students: we will have one poster session, April 17 from 10:00-12:00. The poster session will be in Gross Hall 3rd floor Ahmadieh Grand Hall. For a keynote version of an example poster see tex example or keynote example. If you are auditing the course, we'd love to have you at the poster sessions (bring your research groups too!).
Course grade is based on a take home midterm (15%), a take home final (35%), a final project (40%), and the poster session for the final project (10%). We will have homeworks but they will not be graded, we will post solutions.
There is a Piazza course discussion page. Please direct questions about homeworks and other matters to that page. Otherwise, you can email the instructors (TAs and professor). Note that we are more likely to respond to the Piazza questions than to the email, and your classmates may respond too, so that is a good place to start.
The final porjects should be in LaTeX. If you have never used LaTeX before, there are online tutorials, Mac GUIs, and even online compilers that might help you.
The course project will include a project proposal due mid-semester, a four page writeup of the project at the end of the semester, and an all-campus poster session where you will present your work. This is the most important part of the course; we strongly encourage you to come and discuss project ideas with us early and often throughout the semester. We expect some of these projects to become publications. You are absolutely permitted to use your current rotation or research project as course projects. Examples of previous projects can be found at projects.
The programming assignments in this course can be done in any language but we will be doing simulations in PyTorch.
The course will follow my lecture notes (this will be updated as the course proceeds), Lecture Notes. Some other texts and notes that may be useful include:
The final project TeX template and final project style file should be used in preparation of your final project report. Please follow the instructions and let me know if you have questions.
