Tuesday Feb 11: PS 3 was graded and returned to students; PS 4 returned before grading so students could fix some minor problems and asked to return it on Thursday.

Thursday Feb. 13: PS 6 emailed to students. PS 5 and fixed versions of PS 4 were due.

Thursday Feb. 20: PS 7 was distributed to students. PS 6 was due.

Thursday Feb. 27: PS 7 will not be due until Tuesday March 3. Instructions for final paper and presentation were posted on the class schedule.

NOTE: FINAL PAPER IS NOW DUE ON OR BEFORE WED, MARCH 25. PLEASE SUBMIT IT BY EMAIL. THIS IS A ONE WEEK EXTENSION COMPARED TO THE ORIGINAL DUE DATE, BECAUSE CALTECH HAS EXTENDED THE DUE DATE FOR GRADES TO BE TURNED IN.

Policy for late homework: Usually each homework is worth 100 points. If you turn in the homework late (but up to 6 days late), 5% of the credit (usually, 5 points) will be deducted for each day the homework is late. If you turn in the homework more than 6 days after the due date, you will receive no credit for that homework. If you have a medical or other emergency, please consult with the instructor for an extension on the deadline of the assignment.

The reason for this policy is that all the HW is graded together and then returned to everybody in class 7 days after the due date, where we discuss the answers together. So if you do not turn in your homework in time to get graded with the group homework then your HW will not count.

Student study areas were assigned in class. These are:

Cascadia

Hikurangi

Japan

Alaska

Marianas

Chile

Philippines
