Late Labs

Late labs will be discounted by 10% per day late (so the maximum score after 48 hours past the deadline is 0.9*0.9*0.9 = 72.9%.

This holds UPTILL the end of the 4th day (i.e. after 96 hours), after which the lab will no longer be accepted and you will receive a 0 for the assignment.

Late labs should be emailed directly to both TAs.

If you have a legitimate excuse preventing you from turning in your lab on time, you must email us at least 3 days before the lab due date and we will try our best to fairly judge whether your excuse actually warranties extra time.


All lab assignments are due at 11:55PM on the due date, unless otherwise specified, and should be submitted via their corresponding assignment in Owlspace.

Questions about the labs should be posted on the forum for all students to benefit and labbies will answer questions there.

Please do not send personal emails regarding lab questions.

Sharing Code

Inter-team discussions about labs are fine and encouraged. Sharing actual code segments is, however, prohibited. as is copying large segments of code from online sources (except where directed to by the lab).
