Unless otherwise indicated, assignments and projects are due by the
start of lecture on their due date. If you hand in an assignment more
than one hour late, we will take off 50% for each day (or portion
thereof) that it is late. So, if an assignment is due on February 16,
it must be in the TA or lecturer's hands by 1:30pm (start of class) on
that day, with a one hour grace period after that. In addition, we
will waive one days worth of late penalties over the courseof the
quarter. At quarters end, we will not give Incompletes as grades.
Cheating Vs. Collaborating Guidelines
Collaboration is a very good thing. On the other hand, cheating is
considered a very serious offense. Please don't do it! Concern about
cheating creates an unpleasant environment for everyone. If you cheat,
you risk losing your position as a student in the department and the
college. The department's policy on cheating is to report any cases to
the college cheating committee. What follows afterwards is not fun. So
how do you draw the line between collaboration and cheating? Below is a
reasonable ground rule. Failure to understand and follow these
rules will constitute cheating, and will be dealt with as per
The Gilligan's Island Rule: This rule says that you are free to
meet with fellow students(s) and discuss assignments with
them. Writing on a board or shared piece of paper is acceptable during
the meeting; however, you should not take any written (electronic or
otherwise) record away from the meeting. After the meeting, engage in
a half hour of mind-numbing activity (like watching an episode of
Gilligan's Island), before starting to work on the assignment. This
will assure that you are able to reconstruct what you learned from the
meeting, by yourself, using your own brain.
