All assignments for the class will be listed here.
- There will be approximately 4-5 homework assignments, each with a number of programming problems.
- There may be additional sets of practice problems assigned to help reinforce various topics.
- A midterm “tutorial” assignment where you will write up a short tutorial on a data science subject.
- A final project, done in groups, on a data science problem of your choosing.
All assignments will be due at 11:59 pm ET (midnight) on the due date.
You are expected to know and adhere to the course policies, which govern late days, submissions, and collaboration.
Due dates are tentative for any assignments that haven’t been released yet.

Homeworks are distributed Jupyter notebooks (we will also link Colab notebooks shortly), and are submitted for grading using code in the notebook as well (we will post a description of this proceess along with the first homework). To submit the assignments, sign up for an account (with your andrew email) on the autograding site https://mugrade.datasciencecourse.org
In lieu of a midterm exam, students will write a tutorial on a data science topic of their choosing. More information may be found here.
Again, no late days are permitted on the tutorial, and failure to submit by the deadline will result in zero points for the proposal component.
The final project of the course will consist of a large data science project done in teams of 2-3 people (single person or four person teams will be considered on an individual basis). The final report for this project will be a Jupyter notebook detailing the data collection, analysis, and results. In addition to the report, teams will also prepare a short video for showing during a final project video session.
