Office hours: 2PM-4PM, Mondays, HSB 241C

Office hours: 2PM-4PM, Wednesdays

- Total of \(15\) assignments due on Wednesdays before 5 PM.
- Late assignments will be marked zero.
- There will be both written and computational part in the assignments.
- We will be using AutoGradr to evaluate the computational part of the assignment. Register as a student on AutoGradr.
- Students are strongly encouraged to typeset their solutions using \(\LaTeX/\TeX\) (10% bonus points for submitting in \(\LaTeX\)/\(\TeX\)).
- Students need to drop their assignments (both written and code) via the dropbox link. Each assignment has its own dropbox link. You need to have your roll number as the folder name (all characters in small case), compress it (either zip or rar or tar or any compression format), when you upload it.
- Any copying on assignments will give you a zero on the assignment.
- We will be using JPlag to detect similarities among multiple sets of source code files.
- The grader will expect you to express your ideas clearly, legibly, and completely, often requiring complete English sentences rather than merely just a long string of equations or unconnected mathematical expressions. This means you could lose points for poorly written proofs or answers. Clear exposition is a crucial ingredient of technical communication. Clarity of thought and presentation is more important in mathematics & sciences than any other field. The only way to master exposition is by repeated practicing.
- Assignment grades can be found here.
