You are encouraged to talk about the homework assignments in small groups. However your final submission must be written up in your own words and you must not share actual lines of code with other students.
three six "late" days for the entire quarter. You can use each late day to grant yourself a 24 hour extension.
Late days either apply to an entire problem set (even though you submit each part seperately) or a programming assignment. You can use up to three
late days on an assignment. After you have used up all of your late days we will no longer accept late submissions. If an unforseen circumstance comes up
and you need an extension beyond your late days, contact Chris.
Homework assignments will have specific submission instructions included with the handouts. We will use a certain amount of automatic grading to help us deal with the massive amounts of code everyone submits, so please follow the submission instructions exactly as written!
You are free to discuss the assignment and solutions with others. However, you must write your own assignment, and must not represent any portion of others' work as your own. Anybody violating the honor code will be referred to the Judical-Affairs Office. If convicted, the normal penalty is a quarter suspension or worse.
