This course is organized around 12 in-class labs on varying topics.
Each lab requires you to write a lab report that answers key questions as you work through the lab. These reports should follow the format of the LibreOffice template provided here. Answers to most lab questions can be short; a few sentences is generally sufficient.
The first lab (and only the first lab!) will be submitted via the Canvas site. For all other labs, everything (programs source code, lab reports, etc...) must be checked into the corresponding lab directory in version control and pushed to the online repository.
Lab Reports must be submitted in PDF format, not as LibreOffice files (Choose File->Export as PDF). Documents not in PDF format will be returned ungraded.
Pre-Lab checkpoints are due at the beginning of class of the corresponding lab. A "checkpoint" is simply a quick verification that the requested activity was complete. Detailed grading will be done when the full lab report is submitted.
The full Lab Report is due by 5:00am on the dates listed in the table below. (The intent is that you finish it up at your leisure the night before, rather than waiting till the last second and submitting it at 4:59am...)
To account for the varying amount of work required, each lab is worth a different point amount, as listed in the table below.
