Week11 Thu 2:00 PM
After the last lecture is over, please take time to fill out the online student evaluation of this course on .
Your feedback is very important to help us improve this course, especially because I am a new instructor here at Stanford.
A "YEAH hours" help session for Homework 7 (Trailblazer) will be held by our SL Ashwin on Wed 12/4 at 9:30 - 10:30am in Hewlett 103.
Please come with any questions you have about the assignment!
Week10 Mon 2:00 PM
Homework 7 (Trailblazer) is now posted in the Homework page.
It is due on Friday of "dead week".
Please see the note below about late days; note that at most 1 late day can be used on HW7 and no HW7 submissions are accepted after Monday 2pm of finals week.
Late days clarification:
Some students have asked how late days will work over the Thanksgiving holiday break.
HW6 (Huffman Encoding) is due Mon 11/25, during the break.
If you use one late day on HW6, its due date becomes Wed 11/27.
Two late days makes it become Fri 11/29.
Three late days makes it become Mon 12/2 (the first Monday back from break).
Most assignments allow you to use up to 2 late days, but HW6 Huffman allows you to use 3 late days if you want to wait all the way until Mon 12/2.
But we highly recommend completing Huffman sooner than that, because our last assignment, HW7, will be out during the last week and it is challenging.
It would be difficult to complete both HW6 and HW7 within one week.
Also, as stated in the syllabus, the late day policy adjusts a bit for the last assignment, HW7.
HW7 is going to be due on Fri Dec 6 at 2pm, on the last day of "dead week".
You will only be permitted to use up to one late day on HW7 at most.
HW7 submissions will not be accepted after Mon Dec 9 at 2pm under any circumstances.
Please keep this in mind when planning your schedule of time to work on the assignments.
Our general suggestion is that you try to finish HW6 Huffman before you leave on Thanksgiving break, then just enjoy a break from CS 106B for most/all of your Thanksgiving week, and then work on HW7 when you come back.
HW7 will be posted during the Thanksgiving break if you want to look at it early, but you can decide how best to manage your own time.
