Homework Submission Requirements

This page specifies the homework submission requirements for courses taught by Prof. James P.G. Sterbenz.

Graduate and Upper-Level Course Homework

EECS 780, EECS 881, EECS 882, EECS 983 and EECS 784

Homework Assignments

Homework assignments are due by email PDF attachment to the graduate assistant (GTA or grader) and cc: instructor James P.G. Sterbenz <jpgs@eecs.ku.edu> at 23:59 on the date specified in the schedule table. The Subject: line must begin with the exact string EECSnnn - assignment in which nnn is replaced with the appropriate course number. Submission to other email addresses or with other subject lines will be ignored. If you do not receive an acknowledgement from the graduate assistant within 48 hours or the due date, resend the email (with no modifications). Each page of your homework problems must include your name (but not your KUID) and be numbered.

PDF attachments must be named as <lastname>-homework-<#>.pdf, where <lastname> is your family name and <#> is the homework assignment number from the course schedule table.

All problems that involve intermediate calculations or steps to get to the answer must show this intermediate work. All problems whose answer is not obvious must include an explanation of why the answer is chosen. Problems not showing this intermediate work and explanations will receive zero credit.

You are welcome to discuss the homework problems and solution strategies with one another, but are expected to individually work out the detailed solutions. Do not copy solutions from one another, nor from a solution manual, nor from any online source. See the academic integrity page for further information and sanctions.

Late submissions will generally not be accepted unless prior arrangements have been made.

EECS 780 Wireshark Assignments

Wireshark labs must be submitted in a separate email and must begin with the exact string EECS780 - wireshark <type> (in which type is substituted with the type, such as getting started or TCP). Normally, these assignments will be due at the same time as homework problems. They should be submitted in a separate email from the homework problems. PDF attachments must be named as <lastname>-wireshark-<type>.pdf, where <lastname> is your family name and <type> is substituted with the type, such as getting started or TCP).

EECS 881 ONL Assignments

Open Network Lab assignments should be prepared and submitted in the same manner as other homework assignments. If submitting electronically, it should be in a separate email (not combined with homework exercises) with a subject line: EECS7881 - ONL lab name. Unless otherwise instructed, submit a paragraph or two summarising what you did, and what you learned.

EECS 780 and 882 ns-3 Simulations and Programming Assignments

Any assignment involving programming (including ns-3 simulations) must:

Simulation exercises must additionally include:


Undergraduate Course Homework

EECS 563 and EECS 140

Homework Assignments

Homework assignments are due in class on the date specified in the course schedule table. Late submissions will not be accepted. If you know you will be unable to come to class, you may submit your homework to the EECS office and must get the receptionist to timestamp before the office closes on the specified due date, and then put in the grader’s mailbox. Assignments put in the professor’s mailbox will not be graded.

Homework assignments must be folded in half with your name, date, and homework # legibly written on the right half (that is, on the front with the folded edge on the left side like a book).

Homework assignments are expected to be neatly prepared. Homework problems that are not clearly legible to the graders will receive zero credit.

For EECS 140 all logic and circuit diagrams must be done with the aid of a template and straight edge. Hand-sketched electronic components, logic gates, and functional blocks are not acceptable. Computer generated symbols must use the correct standard-complaint symbols; for logic symbols this means the proper aspect ratios and arc radii according to ANSI Y32.14, IEEE 91a, or MIL-STD-806C.

Assignments, labs, and exam questions not meeting these requirements will receive a grade of zero on the corresponding sections.

You are welcome to discuss the homework problems and solution strategies with one another, but are expected to individually work out the detailed solutions. Do not copy solutions from one another. See the academic integrity page for further information and sanctions.
