Assignments Policy
You will be given several assignments. These should be submitted to Teaching assistant directly or via email in a timely fashion. Assignments should be submited each week before (or at the beggining) the labs by the due date for the respective assignment.
Lab Assignments
There will be approximately 5 Lab assigments for which you will be given 2 weeks to complete and each will be worth 10 points. Lab assignments will include everything that was covered before the last lab assignment.
Homework Assignments
Late submissions of homework are not allowed! However, individual exceptions will only be granted in the rarest of circumstances. Appeals to
accept late homework should be directed by email to the instructor, and should typically be accompanied by appropriate documentation (e.g. doctor's note).
Unless otherwise specified, homework may not be done in groups
Homework problems will be discussed on the labs on the day the homework was due. It is highly recommended to take notes during homework discussion as you will not have your homework with you.
