Assignments

Policy

Homework assignments will be due at the beginning of class. Late homework turned in by the following class will be deducted 20%. No credit will be given for assignments later than this deadline unless exceptional circumstances are demonstrated. You are encouraged to work together as it can be quite beneficial, but everyone must turn in their own work and every student is individually responsible for understanding the material covered in the assignments.

Extra credit opportunity: draft a HiRISE image caption, and/or suggest a new target! For the latter, just send me the 6-digit target ID # assigned when you submit it (e.g., the one I created in class is 140384). For a caption, browse our already-captioned images to get a sense for the style, then find an image here that has no caption, draft one up and send to me for editing. Or if you’d prefer a brand-new image acquired during my cycle (Nov 27-Dec 10), let me know your preferred science theme(s) and I’ll find you one. – due 12/9/16

Reading for week 15: Chapter 13 in Planetary Sciences
