Throughout the semester assignments will be provided to compliment classroom instruction. These assignments will be graded. There will be 8 graded assignments provided in the semester. Assignments typically begin as in-class activities. The assignment is begun in class with assistance from the instructor and the student is then left to complete the assignment independently.
Completing the assignments, as an individual, is the best way to prepare for the quizzes and exams.
Assignments typically include the instructions to “upload your work to the class server” and then to “deliver the word document to your instructor as directed”. Students must follow the assignments submission instructions completely to receive credit for their work (i.e. students must perform the upload and deliver the word document). Assignments submitted any other way will not be graded. (For example, a student who prints their work and slides it under the instructor’s door when instructed to do otherwise will not receive credit for the assignment.)
Any assignment submitted properly before the assigned due date/time will be treated as “on time” and will be graded accordingly. Assignments uploaded within the 48 hours after the due date will receive a 20% late penalty. Assignments uploaded after this 48-hour grace period will receive a grade of zero and will not be graded.
It is acceptable (and sometimes advantageous!) for two students to collaborate on an assignment. However, each student must submit his/her own copy of the solution. Similarly, each individual student is responsible for setting up any software and/or resources as directed in the assignment. Students will have the opportunity to indicate who they worked with when they submit their work and are expected to do so.
Assignment solutions will not be provided by the instructor. However, assignment solutions may be reviewed in class, and/or presented via video.
