Course notes and resources

Assessment information and Assignments

Assessment of the course is based on the following assignments. There will be 4 assignments in total, with the first 3 assignments counting 20% (each) of the total course credit. The 4th assignment serves as an exam assignment (take home examination) and counts 40% of the total course credit. This information and more is also available on the class summary webpages for ASTR4012 and ASTR8002.

Please submit your assignment solutions by the assignment due date. Note that late submissions are possible, but will get a penalty of 5% of the credit per working day, up to a maximum of 5 working days, at which point you would not get credit for the assignment. Note that late submissions are not possible for assignment 4, because it is a 'take home examination'. Please find more detailed information on course assessment procedures and policies.

Note on collaboration and team work for solving assignments

Collaboration and team work is strongly encouraged, especially when you need help with solving an assignment. If you feel that you cannot solve an assignment completely on your own, please do reach out to your fellow students for help to improve your basic understanding, by discussing the assignment. You are also encouraged to ask and discuss during the drop-in/tutorial sessions. However, this should not lead to producing identical assignment solutions. Ultimately, you must work through, understand, and answer the assignment questions on your own, and not simply copy from other students' work. Please also note the information on ANU policies regarding collusion and plagiarism.
