The following is taken from the course syllabus:

Late problem sets will be penalized 10% for each day that they are late. Those submitted more than three days beyond their due date will receive no credit.

Each student has a budget of three days that they can use to avoid late penalties. It is up to the student to decide when/how they use these days (i.e., all at once or individually). Students must identify whether and how many days they use when they submit an assignment.

It is not acceptable to use code or solutions from outside class (including those found online), unless the resources are specifically suggested as part of the problem set.

You are encouraged to collaborate through study groups and to discuss problem sets and the project in person and over Slack. However, you must acknowledge who you worked with on each problem set. You must write up and implement your own solutions and are not allowed to duplicate efforts. The correct approach is to discuss solution strategies, credit your collaborator, and write your solutions individually. Solutions that are too similar will be penalized.
