Homework in this course consists in basic assignments and mini-projects.


Students can work on assignments and mini-projects in a team of up to 2 people. Each student is responsible for contacting other students and form a team. For initial contacts, and possibly for later discussions, you are encouraged to use Piazza. It is okay to form different teams for each assignment/project.

Teams of 1 are accepted but not encouraged. In particular, no reduction of work will be granted to them.


The grade for each assignment or project will be given on an individual basis. All students in a team of 2 will be asked to submit an evaluation of how well they and their teammate performed as team members. Each evaluation is confidential and will be be incorporated into the calculation of the project grade.

Assignments and mini-projects will be posted in ICON's Dropbox during the semester.
