  • Online Office hours: MARKS CLARIFICATION

    Dec 13, Fri, 7 PM – 8 PM

    Zoom Online Meeting: Yet to be published

     

    Course Instructor will be available online during this time. Here interested students can clarify their marks. We strongly encourage students to ask doubts in problems or steps that are not clear to them while solving.

  • Online Video Lessons: Additional Reading/Viewing Materials

     

    These additional video lessons will be very useful to students who want to master the concepts in depth. Here concepts are explained elaborately and with more than one example. And these videos unlike webinars, are well designed to be excellent self help materials. Students can watch these videos before or after Webinar Lecture OR before or after submission. Learning from these videos goes beyond scoring marks in the assignment.

    Students are encouraged to attempt these assignment questions independently. You can discuss amongst your small group or your classmate. But you SHOULD NOT simply ask your classmate to solve it for you. You SHOULD NOT submit your class mate’s work either in full or in part as your work. After any such discussion, YOU SHOULD ENTER THE ANSWER IN YOUR ANSWER FILE BY YOURSELF. DO NOT VIOLATE THIS HONOR CODE. If found violated, this puts your work in all assignments (including this one) in jeopardy.

  • Discussion:

    Click here to Discuss (Log-in required)

     

    This is the discussion forum for this assignment. Here you find previous discussions moderated by the course instructor. You will find answers to many of your doubts here as one or more of your seniors would have asked similar doubts. If, after a search, you could not find answer to your questions, then you can post here. Course instructor might answer your question or some of your classmates may answer your questions. At times specially staffed moderators answer your questions. You can also answer questions by your classmates here. We strongly encourage you to be active here. Because, being active here will get a special mention in the award of course completion certificate. Students can start posting on the forum at any time after the start date and can post even beyond its due date as we believe discussions can continue even after the assignment due date.

  • Overall Feedback Video:

    WILL BE SHARED IN WHATSAPP GROUP

     

    This video summarizes student answers for each one of the sub points in the assignment question. It tells you how many students got it right and how many didn’t. What are the most common mistakes committed by the students and how to avoid them in future, or sometimes, which are good practices and which aren’t. Ideally, students should download corrected answer file and feedback video in one sitting and then watch this video while reviewing your correct answer file.
