Homeworks are formal assessments designed to provide students with an opportunity apply the skills they have learned in the course in solving real world problems. They are graded based on a rubric included at the end of their instructions.

These assignments are available on your instructor's Assignments page. Homeworks are due at 11:59pm Eastern Time on the listed due date. A penalty of 20% per calendar day will be deducted from late work. During Summer semesters, Homework #5 may not be accepted late.

Only one submission will be graded for each Homework. In the event of multiple submissions from a student, instructors will grade the most recent complete submission received at the time they begin grading.

Extensions for Homework due dates are at the instructor's discretion and will generally only be granted in the case of an personal or family emergency or severe illness. All requests must be made within a timely manner, preferably prior to the assignment due date and under no circumstances more than 48 hours after the assignment was due.
