Questions and Answers

Often a student will ask a question that provokes an answer of use to other students. When this happens, in addition to answering the student directly, we will post the question and answer on the Q & A page. Urgent answers will also be sent to the course mailing list.


We will often send course-related email to your department Unix account, for example to clarify homework problems or to notify you of due date changes. You are responsible for reading email on this account at least once per day during the week. If it is not convenient for you to read email on this account you are responsible for forwarding your email to a more convenient location.


Prompt, frequent and constructive feedback is essential to success in any endeavor. For this reason we strive to grade your work in a timely manner. We would also appreciate your feedback on the course. Please use this anonymous form to provide constructive criticism and offer suggestions (or dole out praise :-)). You can, of course, also email your comments.
