CHAOS, AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT LATE PROBLEM SETS?
- Joe S. Tudent asks:
I have a favor to ask of you. I handed in the last assignment
late because of some unexpected reasons. Can I still get some points
for the late homework?
- Predrag's answer:
CREDIT FOR LATE PROBLEM SETS:
It's best for both you and us (teacher, graders) that the problem sets are
delivered on the due date (usually Tuesday class). Of course, the only
point of doing them is that you learn something, so if you are - for
example - almost successful in integrating helium but there is a bug to
fix - tell me what the problem is, and we will most likely
be understanding. The same is true if your grandmother died, or the dog
ate your problem set - my assumption is that if
you tell me that, it is true.
Rest is common sense: Having other problem sets or exams to do is not an
excuse - we all have many parallel obligations. Also, as soon as a
solution is handed to the class, your late problem set does not count,
unless your solution is much prettier than mine
(in which case, we distribute it to the class, and immortalize you
in the birdtracks.eu).
