Late homeworks are accepted only in exceptional circumstances.

If the homework involves a computer or numerical assignment, you will be graded on the results of the assignment and not on the code. Each assignment will specify tasks for each you have to write your own code, and tasks for which you can use packages or other available code. There are no restrictions of what programming language to use. You will however, be expected to understand the code you are using, and to be able to occasionally answer questions about what it's doing. Also, I may require that you submit your code, but this is mainly for "completeness" reasons. I will not grade you by it, and most of the time I won't even read it.

Submit your code here .
