Homework resources and collaboration policy

Homeworks and the exam may contain material that has been covered by papers and webpages. Since this is a graduate class, we expect students to want to learn and not google for answers.

Homeworks will be done individually: each student must hand in their own answers. It is acceptable, however, for students to collaborate in figuring out answers and helping each other solve the problems. We will be assuming that, as participants in a graduate course, you will be taking the responsibility to make sure you personally understand the solution to any work arising from such collaboration. You also must indicate on each homework with whom you collaborated.

The final project may be completed by small teams.

Final take home exam should be done individually, with no discussions with other students.


Late homework policy


Homework regrades policy

If you feel that we have made an error in grading your homework, please turn in your homework with a written explanation to Monica Hopes, and we will consider your request. Please note that regrading of a homework may cause your grade to go up or down.


Homework assignments


Final project

For project milestone, roughly half of the project work should be completed. A short, graded write-up will be required, and we will provide feedback.
