Homework and Project Submissions

Answers to programming problems should be submitted electronically, using the packaging and submission procedure that will be described in class and on the class newsgroup.

All electronic submissions must be made using the upload interface at http://chaw.eip10.org/u/. Electronic submissions in all other forms, such as email or physical media, will be discarded and receive no credit.

If your upload is successful, you will be presented with a confirmation Web page similar to the following sample. You should record the reported MD5 checksum and timestamp.

SUCCESS: Please note the following for your records.  
Successfully saved cos480-hw01-aardvark-alice-4233.tgz.  
MD5 checksum: 09ee098b83d94c7c046d6b55ebe84ae1

If you do not see something very similar then your submission is unsuccessful.

Answers to non-programming problems should also be submitted electronically as above in PDF format. The PDF file may be either a scanned copy of handwritten work or generated directly from a typed electronic version (your choice). However, it is critically important that your submission have good legibility regardless of how it is produced. Please be very mindful of file sizes especially if you use scanned PDFs. Unless you are adept at a program that typesets math /well/, well written and well scanned hand-written versions are likely to be better than clumsily typed versions. Illegible, hard to read, or otherwise messy submissions, whether handwritten on typed, are likely to be returned without grading, for zero credit.

Fallback procedure If (and only if) there are unexpected problems and you are unable to submit your work as above, then you should save your file on your own computer (with some backups), compute its MD5 checksum using the md5sum utility on Unix-like systems (or other similar tools), and submit the file name, time stamp, and MD5 checksum (only, not the file itself) by email with a suitable Subject header.
