6.851: Advanced Data Structures (Spring'10)
- There will be a weekly one-page assignment, up to 9
assignments in total.
- Solutions will be posted here after the due date; for this reason, late
days are not allowed.
- You may skip any one problem, or we will ignore the problem with the
lowest grade. If you volunteered to scribe twice, we will ignore the
lowest two grades.
- The answers must be typeset in LaTeX. The answers must
fit in one page, or your solution will not be read.
Use at least 10 pt font and 1 inch margins.
This rule is meant to prepare you for writing research publications:
one often has to explain great ideas in a very limited number of pages.
- Submissions must be via email to 6851-ps#at#csail.mit.edu
and include a compiled PDF attachment. The file name should follow the
pattern: [initial][last-name]-ps[number].pdf; for example, a solution
to the 3rd assignment from John Doe should be named
- Solutions do not need to include all calculations, trivial details etc.
Just prove to us that you found the solution, and you understand it well.
- Problems will be graded on a 0-2 scale:
- 0 =
You didn't get it. Filling one page to the brim does not mean you can't get
zero. Please don't write stuff you know is wrong.
- 1 =
Your solution was ultimately a good one, but the write-up contained significant
errors or omissions.
- 2 = (We think) you got it.
- Due dates are generally at the beginning of lecture on the specified day.
