Late Policy

The assignments are due at 11:59 PM on the due date. You are given three late days (24-hour extensions) that you can use any time during the semester.

Collaboration Policy

You may discuss assignments with others, but everything handed in must be your own work. All code must be your own --- you may not use code from your classmates, the internet, or any other source.

Submitting Your Work

You can submit your solutions to the programming assignments electronically, by creating a .zip or .tar.gz file containing your code, results, and a README, Word or PDF file documenting your results and how to use your program. Attach this to an email to Prakash Prabhu at pprabhu@cs. Alternatively, you may create a web page documenting your results (please include a link to your code), and send the URL.
