Read this before you attempt to do your assignment!!

  • You must do your homework only on Microsoft Office products running on Windows. Do not do your homework on Ubuntu or any other Unix platformsotherwise, our tool may not read your homework and you may get zero points. If you don't have Microsoft Office products, you can use computer laboratories in the METU campus.
  • Homework files are customized for each student. (i.e. your student ID is embedded in the file that you download.) Do not share your file with others! Otherwise, your submission will not be evaluated and both you and the person that you get the file from will get zero points from the assignment.
  • The deadline for Assignment 1 submission is 13.11.2019 (Wednesday) 23:55. Later submissions that are sent within the next day (14.11.2019) will be evaluated as late submissions and your grade will get a penalty for that (depending on how late you submitted). Any submission that is later than 14.11.2019, 23:55 will be discarded by the system. You are responsible for submitting early so that you are not affected by last-minute system glitches.
