Administrative Details


Homework assignments will be given out roughly once a week. Typically, there will be a homework given out each Monday and a deadline will be posted prominently at the top of the homework. This deadline will usually be 10pm sharp the following Monday, but please do not count on that. All homework is to be submitted electronically using the homework submission form on the course website.

A few important notes on the homework assignments:

Late Submission Policy

Homework submitted after the published deadline (found at the top of the homework) is deemed late and will incur a penalty as follows: it will be graded as usual, and your score will then be multiplied by a penalty factor PF(x), where x is the number of minutes by which the submission is late (rounded down to an integer).

The formula for this penalty factor is PF(x) = min{0.95, exp(-x/4320)}. Thus, the value of a late homework submission decays exponentially, with a half-life of just over two days, but with a minimum of a 5% penalty. Examples: work turned in five minutes late gets 95% credit, one hour late gets 95% credit, six hours late gets 92.0% credit, one day late gets 71.7% credit, three days late gets 36.8%, and one week late gets 9.7%.

Working Together and the Honor Principle

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment with the professor to discuss the matter, by Apr 15, 2011. All discussions will remain confidential, although the Student Accessibility Services office may be consulted to discuss appropriate implementation of any accommodation requested.
