Comment on the papers. For each paper, provide a short (a few sentences) summary of the focus of the paper or key arguments made.
Your comments do not need to be long at all; I mostly want to make sure that you've thought about the important parts of each paper.
You should write a summary as if your boss gave you the reading, and said "Tell me what this is about. Also, I skimmed it and had a few questions -- answer those. Keep it short: under a page or so is perfect".

Homeworks and reading assignments should be submitted in electronic form (word or pdf) via email to Isabel Blanco (firstname.lastname@example.org), before the end of the day (Pacific Time) of the due date. If there is difficulty with electronic submission, you may notify the course consultant, and mail or fax the assignment to the CalVIEW NTU office.
Also, the CalVIEW office asks that you put your name, the course number (CS 252 in our case), and the homework number on anything you email or turn into the office via fax or mail. They receive a lot of correspondence from students and it can be difficult for them to decipher homework when there is no name, homework number, or class name on the document. Also, please make a copy of everything you send, in case work disappears en route.
All homework is due on the dates specified on the syllabus. A late assignment will lose 20% of the grade for each day it was submitted after the due date. However it is understandable that most NTU engineers/students are trying to balance this class with unpredictable work demands. In occasions when such circumstances occur, please contact the course consultant ahead of time to find out if it is possible to get extensions. Note that in all cases, you must request an extension BEFORE the due date.
This should go without saying, but for the record: it is essential that you do your own work. Everyone is welcome to consult with others to discuss the problems, but you must do your own assignments. The one area in which the CalView NTU office is NOT flexible is in terms of the necessary integrity.
