Labs are an integral part of the course, as they contribute to the requirements for passing the course and to the final grade (see grading guidelines).
We normally have three supervised lab sessions per week, one on Monday and two on Thursday. See below for a more precise schedule, where there is no lab supervision on dates corresponding to cells with grayed out text or no text. See the official schedule in TimeEdit for final information; the week number here corresponds to the week number in TimeEdit.
Labs are running virtually. In order to ask for assistance you have to create an online meeting using Zoom and invite the TAs to the meeting. You then post the assistance request (with the link) to the discussion forum (CTH/GU).
If you passed some or all labs in a previous instance of the course, just submit in Fire a plain text file for each lab that you passed. The text file should contain your personal information (so that we can look you up in the records), as well as when you took the course before. If your mark for a given lab is in our records, you will get the same amount of points you got in that edition of the course. If your mark in not in our records, you will get the minimum points needed to pass that lab (see minimum points to pass).
Each student group must present and demo their submissions to each lab to a TA during a demo session, held during one of the lab sessions after each deadline. No feedback of submissions will be given to a student group until they have done a demo of their solution.
If, for some reason, either you or your lab partner cannot attend a demo session, please contact the TAs at least one week before the demo in order to negotiate a new date and time for the demo. Simply not attending a demo session will result in your submission being rejected on the first attempt.
Demos must be coordinated in advance using one of these polls. To fill out the poll, please note that you must post your group number and a meeting ID for a working zoom meeting as your name in the doodle. If you don’t know how to schedule a zoom meeting ahead of time, see here. During the demo session, make sure that you are at least 5 minutes early and that your demo is ready to go as soon as we connect to your zoom.
