Course work

You will complete five programming assignments. You will be allowed to work in pairs on some of these assignments.

In addition to the programming assignments, there will be a quarter-long group project.

Programming assignments




Late submissions

All students may use up to two 24-hour extensions for the programming assignments during the quarter. These extensions are all-or-nothing: you cannot use a portion of an extension and have the rest “carry over” to another extension. If extraordinary circumstances (illness, family emergency, etc.) prevent a student from meeting a deadline, the student must inform their instructor before the deadline.

To be clear, only programming assignments, not project deliverables, can be submitted late under this policy.

After the available extensions are exhausted, no further late work will be accepted.
