- Homework 8 (due Wednesday, June 7th), solutions
Readings and Quizzes
- These quizzes are administered using Stanford Google Drive. You may have problems logging in if you are logged into a personal google/gmail account. Here's how to deal with that issue:
- Navigate to google drive.
- If prompted, sign in with your Stanford email and password.
- If you are logged into another google account, it will take you to that account's google drive page (rather than prompting you to sign in). Once there, in the most upper right hand corner there is a circle with your profile pic/initials. Click on that, then click "add account," then sign in with your Stanford email and password.
- You should now be able to switch between your personal and Stanford google accounts by clicking the circle in the upper right hand corner.
- The links to the reading quizzes should now work as long as you remain signed into your Stanford account (even if you are still logged in on another account).
- Reading quizzes are open-book/notes tests. You may not collaborate on them with other students or receive any other outside help.
- Reading Quiz 1 (Sections 5.1 and 5.2), due at noon on Friday 4/07
- Reading Quiz 2 (Sections 5.3 and 5.4), due at noon on Wednesday 4/12
- Reading Quiz 3 (Sections 8.1 and 8.2 up to and including Example 4), due at noon on Friday 5/05
