There are five homework/lab assignments, each covering roughly two weeks of the course. In each two-week ``section'', the first week is devoted primarily to theory while the second week is focused more on software and applications. Thus, each assignment contains both a theory and laboratory part. The lab portion typically requires programming in matlab.
Each assignment is typically announced on Tuesday in the first week of the section. The theory part is normally due the following Tuesday at 3:15 pm in the 320 mailbox (located in the Knoll, central wing, second floor, facing the printer). The lab part is normally due by midnight the following Friday, i.e., at the end of the two-week section.
For lab assignments, we will be using the Coursework website. To sign up, go to the Coursework website and find Music320A. Once you are enrolled in the class, you can upload your matlab files in the ``drop box'' on the left menu.
See § below regarding obtaining help with theory and lab assignments.
Regarding late homeworks, 7 free late days are allowed (with hours rounded up to the nearest day). Late homeworks beyond this will not be accepted. Only up to 3 late days can be used for any one assignment. When using late days, students are required to write the number of late days used at the top of the assignment (date and time).
Students are encouraged to discuss the homework assignments with each other. It is fine to learn from a classmate how to solve any of the homework problems, but each student is responsible for carrying out and writing up the assignments individually. It is an honor code violation to copy the work of others.
