V. Grading

  1. Homework (weekly, drop the lowest score): 15%
    • Assigned on Wednesdays. Due on Wednesdays (5pm) on the following week. Solutions posted 7pm on the due date
      Paper homework can be submitted in boxes 62 (section CCS), 63 (section E) and 64 (section G), located on the third floor of ECEB. You may type your homework or handwrite it.
    • Homework can be done in LaTeX if you prefer to do so, but is not required. TeX templates are provided to those that want to typeset their solutions.
    • Late homework submissions will not be accepted.
    • Please submit regrade requests as a private post on Piazza with a screenshot/picture of the question you would like regraded, an explanation of why you think you deserve more points, and your NetID. Alternatively, email the head TA (yuqil3@illinois.edu).
  2. Quizzes (weekly, drop two lowest scores): 15%
    • Fridays (last 15 minutes in class; cover materials in the homework that was due 2 days before)
    • You must take the quiz in your own section unless you have prior permission from your instructor.
    • There will be no quizzes for Homeworks 5 and 10; Midterms 1 and 2 replace these quizzes.
    • Because the lowest two quiz scores will be dropped, there will be no make-up quizzes. You should plan to take every quiz in case you need to miss class due to unexpected travel or illness. If you miss more than two quizzes due to excused absences, you should contact your instructor to make special arrangements.
    • Please submit regrade requests as a private post on Piazza with a screenshot/picture of the question you would like regraded, an explanation of why you think you deserve more points, and your NetID. Alternatively, email the head TA (yuqil3@illinois.edu).
