Assignment will generally have a written part and a programming part. The following explains what we expect for each part and submission instructions.

Written Assignments

Clearly written homeworks are much easier to grade and provide feedback on, and so we encourage students to type their assignments, but this is not a requirement. You will receive 1/3 bonus point for submitting a typed written assignment (e.g. LaTeX, Microsoft Word). This means if you type all 3 assignments, you can receieve a total bonus of 1% in the class. You may alternatively scan (to a pdf) handwritten assignments: handwritten assignments will not receive the bonus point.

Programming Assignments

The grader runs on Python 3.6, which is not guaranteed to work with older versions (below 3.6). Please use Python 3.6.X to develop your code. The final grading will be run on Linux servers and will be compatible with all Python 3.6.X versions.

The submitted code will not be graded if it has one or more of the following issues:

Written Assignments

All assignments (homework problems and project milestones) must be submitted on Gradescope by 11:59 PM (23:59). Make sure to compile all written portions into a single PDF file before uploading to Gradescope. Mark each page to the corresponding problem.

Programming Assignments

All assignments (homework problems and project milestones) must be submitted using the submit script by 11:59 PM (23:59). Please note that the submission script is only guaranteed to work on rice (rice.stanford.edu). To submit your assignment, please follow the instructions below:

Project

For the project milestones and reports, make sure only one member of your group submits a group submission on behalf of the entire group on Gradescope by 11:59 PM (23:59). Make sure to include every team member when submitting for the group. See Gradescope “Create a group assignment” for any questions.

For the final project, please submit your code (do not include any data files) on Gradescope as a single project.zip file, or include a github link in your report.
