We will be following a strict late day policy. Any assignments submitted after 11:59pm on the due date will be docked 10% for each late (calendar) day. So, if an assignment is due on Thursday and it is submitted at 12:00 midnight (1 minute late) on Thursday night, 10% will automatically be deducted; if it is submitted at 12:00 midnight on Saturday, 30% will be deducted; and so on. There is one major exception to this rule:
Each student is allowed two 24-hour extensions that (s)he may apply to any homework, no questions asked; note that these extensions can be used for separate homework assignments or can be combined to make a single 48-hour extension for any single homework. To let us know about your decision to apply an extension to a particular homework assignment, you need to state this decision in the text of your submission for that assignment, along with the number of extensions being used for the assignment.
The usual late day policy applies after the free extension has been used. For example, if you use both 24-hour extensions for homework 1 then you will get full credit if you submit your solutions before 11:59 pm on Saturday (since it is then becomes a 48 hour extension); then you will have 10% off if you submit your solutions between 12:00 am Sunday morning and 11:59 pm Sunday night, and so on.
These extensions are there for the purposes of emergencies, medical or otherwise. Apart from this, there will be no other extensions given out, except under extreme circumstances (If you feel this is the case, contact the staff ASAP.).
Homeworks will NOT be accepted any more than 3 (three) days after the deadline under any circumstances without prior course staff approval. No homeworks will be accepted if the solutions have been released for any reason.
We shall grade only the late submission and apply late penalties or free days according to the Late Policy (above).
Be careful in submitting multiple times for a late submission. We shall grade only the latest submission, and apply late penalties or free days according to the timestamp of the latest submission.
Finally, please remember to save a copy of your homework, in the unlikely event that something happens to it. If we require another copy but you do not have one on hand, you will have to type up your homework again.
