- Six labs will be assigned this quarter. It is hoped that the
student will be self-motivated and carefully complete all the assignments for
his/her own benefit. These will be counted toward a (conventional) grade -
see the grading policy for details. It is OK to
submit one solution for a group of students of size NOT EXCEEDING
three: just indicate the names of the team members in a comment on Canvas
so I will be sure not to miss it.
The grading scale will be 0-5 for each lab. The sum of all six lab scores
is the contribution to the conventional score due to labs. Thus, the
maximum the labs can contribute to a conventional score is 30 points.
No solutions will be accepted after the
last week of class. At most one lab will be accepted during
the last week of class. At most one lab will be accepted
during the week before the last week of class. At most two
labs will be accepted during the week before the week before
the last week of class.
Definition: A week begins on a Sunday and ends on a Saturday.
Definition: The last 'week' of class is the week that includes
the last day of class which is 3 December, the beginning of that week
being 27 November.
Note: the last day of class IS NOT the last day that
finals are given - it occurs at least one week before the last
day that finals are given and, this semester, is 3 December.
Of course, students may discuss lab assignments with each other. However,
it is customary that any significant help from another student or book
should be acknowledged in a comment when you ask me to review what you have.
Two or three students submitting a solution will each receive the same
conventional score as if only one person submitted the solution. If the
submission is worth brownies (perhaps it is a difficult problem), though,
then the value of the solution, in brownies, is divided equally among
all members of the group.
