CMSC 250 Fall 2016 Homework #1 Posted: 08-30-2016 Due: 09-06-2016 Student’s first and last name:Mao Benjamin Grade (grader only): 114042217 Student’s UID: 0303 Student’sSection: University Honor Pledge: I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received anyunauthorized assistanceonthisassignment/examination. Print the text of the University Honor Pledge below : I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized assistance on This assignment/examination. BenjaminMao Signature: Problem (1): Llamas with hats (25 pts) Figure 1: Why are those llamas wearing hats? Llamas aren’t supposed to wear hats. Important note: This is a real assignment, worth 25 points of your first homework grade. Watch the entire saga (episodes 1 -12) of “Llamas with hats” , available on the YouTube channel “FilmCow”by navigating this link and answer the following questions: (i) In the 1st episode, Carl mentions his least favorite thing toWhat is it? Killing people (2 pts) (ii) In the 2nd episode, where are the life rafts that were attached to the cruise ship Carl and Paul were boarding? At the bottom of the ocean since Carl bit lots of holes in them (2 pts) 1 g 09-06-2016 – CMSC 250 2 He ate the bartender. (iii) In the 3rd episode of the saga, why is Carl’s mojito taking so long? (2 pts) (iv) In the 4th episode, why is Carl having a hard time hearing Paul? Because apparently it’s hard to hear him over the Sound of melting city. (2 pts) (v) Besides creating a crack in space-time through which he siphons millions of baby hands, what are the other five activities that Paul engaged in during the day when the 5th episode of the saga took place? (1 pts) each) (a) Washed the car (b) Made a donation to the local girl scout troop (c) Returned overdue movie from BlockBuster Stepped on a ladybug by accident (d) Baked some banana bread for their neighbor Pat (e) (vi) Starting with episode 7, the saga takes somewhat of a dark turn, culminating in Carl’s sad fate (and, arguably, the rest of the planet’s as well). What do you believe the message that Jason Steele, creator of those videos, is trying to convey to the audience, if any? 1 (12 pts) BEGIN YOUR ANSWER TO QUESTION (1)(vi) BELOW THIS LINE [Type a quote from the document or the summary of an interesting point. You can position the text box anywhere in the document. Use the Text Box Tools tab to change the formatting of the pull quote text box.] Carl needs purpose in his life, which happens to be killing people for pleasure and seeing how Paul reacts. Before Paul moved away, he was shocked at the deeds Carl had done. After Paul moved away, Carl needed a substitute to remain shocked at what he did. He has a mask of Paul that he talks to and puts the mask on a sheep, but there is no substitute for company. When Carl realizes Paul is dead, his life no longer has purpose, so he commits suicide. Perhaps Steele is saying that we need friends to have purpose. 1 Hint: Compare the dates of the individual “Llamas with hats 1,2,. . . , 12” videos. 09-06-2016 – CMSC 250 3 Problem (2): Course Data (25 pts ) To complete this problem, you will need to log into our website and read the first few parts oour syllabus.

BEGIN YOUR ANSWER TO QUESTION (2)(c) BELOW THIS LINE I expect to be able to learn draw a logical conclusion based on certain observations I believe to be true all or most of the time. This skill, known as Inductive Reasoning, would be useful not only in the workplace, but also in real-life as well. For instance, say I have seen dozens of tornadoes in the United States and they have all rotated clockwise. If I then see a tornado and I know that I am in the U.S, I can assume it is rotating clockwise (Silly example). 09-06-2016 – CMSC 250 4 Problem (3): Syllabus (50 pts) Answering the following questions requires a thorough reading of our syllabus. This includes the campus -wide so-called “Course-Related Policies” to which we link from our page. Question (a): True / False (2 pts each for 20 pts total) Answer questions (i) - (x) with T or F in the small horizontal space ( ) to their right, if you believe them to be true or false respectively. You do not need to justify your answers. (i) According to document V -100(B), the University of Maryland Code of Student Conduct , people who audit a course are not required to abide by its regulations. F (ii)UMD’s Code of Academic Integrity defines plagiarism as “[...]intentionally or knowingly representing the words or ideas of another as one’s own in any academic course or exercise.” T (iii)According to document VI -1.60(A), the University of Maryland Sexual Misconduct Polic y & Procedures, the University aims to resolve any complaints of sexual misconduct within one calendar month from the date when they were first reported.F (iv) It’s the University’s obligation to accommodate every disability.

T Question (b): Multiple Choice (4 pts each for 20 pts total) For questions (i) - (x), select the correct response between (a), (b), (c) or (d). There isexactly one correct response for every question. (i) The “Schedule Adjustment” period refers to the first10 days of classes.

(iii) If we offer a total of 10 post -lecture quizzes (and provided thatwe don’t change the grading policy as dictated on the syllabus), what will those quizzes’ total percentage of their grade be? 09-06-2016 – CMSC 250 5 (a) 10% (b) 20% (c) 5% (d) Something else (iv) Who among the following authors has not authored a recommended textbook for the course: (a) Chung Laung Liu (b) Thomas Koshy (c) Susanna Epp (d) Kenneth Rosen (v) According to the guidelines set forth by the University’s“Course -Related policies”, which subject line among the following is thebest to use when contacting the instructor through e -mail? (a) “Need to be excused from tomorrow’s discussion” (b) “CMSC250 student: Meet today after class?” (c) “CMSC250 student: Request for meeting to review midterm grade” (d) “URGENT! Cannot sit for next week’s midterm!” Question (c): FreeText (10 pts) Juan, an avid follower of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster , wants to be excused from the discus - sion section of Monday 09-12 because of the annual “Spaghetti and Meatballs” fest in his local community. What are the steps that he needs to make in order to ensure that his absence from that particular discussion section is excused? BEGIN YOUR ANSWER TO QUESTION (3)(c) BELOW THIS LINE Juan would need to talk with the instructor during the schedule adjustment period since he knows he will be absent on said date. He will then need to provide religious justification for this event, such as a religious calendar. However, a federal judge in the United States ruled in April 2016 that the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster does not constitute a real religion. Thus, it is highly unlikely that Juan would be excused given that nobody recognizes said religion. He would be better off going to discussion.
