Spring 2015

The due date times are written explicitly on the assignments (e.g., the first critique) and discussed as part of our late policy. If you find an assignment without an explicit due-time, please email us!

It's hard to hear in the back of the class during lecture. Can you speak up?

We'll do our best to check at the beginning of each class whether students in the back can hear (without us also destroying the ears of the people up front). If you can't hear during lecture, please just raise your hand and let us know. Alternatively, there are many seats available up front!

I'd rather do the hands-ons on my own laptop instead of in an Athena cluster. Can you tell me how to install the packages for my particular set-up?

We can't support individual student set-ups because they vary so widely. But, there is a solution! To complete the hands-ons, you don't have to be physically present in an Athena cluster: you can access it remotely via the ssh command.

In a terminal, type: ssh <athena_id>@athena.dialup.mit.edu (replace <athena_id> with whatever your Athena ID is). It will ask for your Athena password, and once you've entered that, you're now using an Athena machine.

Please specify the due date time of the assignments!
