Assignment Submission

Lab assignments are divided into two categories. In-lab assignments are to be finished and shown to the instructor during the lab hour. Take-home exercises are longer assignment intended to be finished a week after it is handed out. Both are to be submitted electronically on the course website unless specifically noted otherwise. The URL for assignment submission is

The checklist for submitted assignments can be viewed here ( Note: You'll only get credit for an assignment if you have either FULL (full) or PARTIAL (half) for it. If the instructor feel that you need to rework your assignment before you can get full credit, you'll get a PARTIAL, where you need to make correction and submit the assignment again, before either Midterm or Final exam, depending on when the assignment is issued. A NO CREDIT will be assigned to an assignment if either (1) A hard deadline of either Midterm or Final exam has passed, or (2) There is a reason for me to believe that you have copied other's work (please don't do this). Unfortunately, you cannot fix NO CREDIT.

Homework assigned during lecture sessions are either in paper form, where it must be submitted to the instructor at the start of the next lecture session, or web form, which need to be completed online.

File Submission System (Getting Account & Using The System)

Some assignments will require you to submit a file as your work. For this, you need to use the department's file submission system. You can access the file submission system by following this link: and follow these steps:

  • Login with account (the same on you use for Jumbo Net)
  • To upload a file
  1. Click on “Lec” tab for writing work and “Lab” tab for lab work. (We will only be using Lab)
  2. Select the course you want to send the file for
  3. Click “Choose File” and select the file you want to upload (The file can not be larger than 15MB and does not have .exe extension)
  4. Click “Upload”
  5. If the upload is successful, you will see the file and the upload timestamp on the file list

If you want to remove a file, click Delete

===== Notes =====

A. If you don't see the course you want to submit a file, or if you have any problems submitting a file, contact the instructor ASAP
B. If you submit a file whose name is already in the list, the new file will overwrite the old file. There is no need to delete the old file first.

Collaboration and Cheating

For homework assignment, students are allowed to discuss the assignments and/or get help from other students. In such circumstance, however, students are required to write down the name of the person the discussion has been made with. Also, each student must write down the answers in his/her own words. Assignment copying is considered cheating and will be penalized accordingly.

Assignment Due Date and Late Policy

In-lab exercise are due midnight the day it is issued, at 11:59pm. Preferably, you will finish and submit the exercise during the lab hour. In-lab assignment WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER DUE DATE If you cannot attend lab that day, you need to contact the instructor to hand in the in-lab assignment at later date.

Take-home assignments are due one to two weeks after it is issued, at 11:59pm. So if an assignment is given this Tuesday, it is due next Monday at 11:59pm (unless stated otherwise on the assignment sheet.) Substantial work on that assignment need to be submitted no later than the due date.

Corrections are due before midterm exam will only be accept until midnight before midterm exam. Those due after midterm will only be accept until midnight before final exam.
