Important Assignment Notes

## Ethics

1. Please do not even exchange ideas with your friends since there is a thin line between exchanging ideas and codes looking the same.
2. Please do not look up web/books for solutions.

All assignments will be evaluated for a maximum of 10. There will be a penalty of -1 for every additional day taken for submission after the assignment due date.

Thus, you will have to be judicious regarding deciding when to submit your assignments.

Example

Suppose you have completed 1/2 of the assignment by the due date.

Scenario 1:

You think that it will take another 1 day to finish 3/4 of the assignment. In this scenario, if you submit by the due date, you will get a maximum score of 5 and if you submit a day after, you will get a maximum score of 6.5 (=7.5-1, -1 for the extra day). Thus, you will get better score if you take an extra day, finish 3/4 of the assignment and then submit.

Scenario 2:

You think that it will take another 3 days to finish 3/4 of the assignment.  In this scenario, if you submit by the due date, you will get a maximum score of 5 and if you submit 3 days after, you will get a maximum score of 4.5 (=7.5-3, -3 for the three extra days). Thus, you will get better score if you submit your assignment that is 1/2 complete by the due date than submit the assignment that will be 3/4 complete after 3 days.
