We ask that you read these instructions carefully. Assignments that are not submitted correctly cannot be graded.

  • Please do not email electronic documents to us.
  • Please share your document, with "Editing permission" with the following 2 addresses (do not use our McMaster email addresses):
    • kgdunn@gmail.com ← please note
    • che4g3@gmail.com
  • Include your name(s) and student number(s) on the first page of the document.
  • If including source code, please paste it into your document. Consider using "Courier" or "Consolas" font to make it appear properly formatted.
  • The document title must be of the form:
2015-4G3-Lastname1-Lastname2-Assignment-NN
2015-4G3-Lastname1-Lastname2-Course-Project
  • If you choose (and it is also our preference) that you start and finish your submission in Google Docs. Some students have reported problems when importing equations and tables from native Word documents. Google Docs does a good, but not perfect job of importing them. Do not allow yourself to get caught with badly formatted documents just before your submission is due.
  • Including pictures or hand based calculations? Scan them in, or take a good clear high-resolution photo of them to include as an image.
  • Please do not share a PDF as your submission.
  • Please do not share ZIP files or a collection of documents as your submission.
  • Please do not share a Word document as your submission.
  • There is really no excuse for improper notation: for example, please use \(\text{m}^3\) instead of m^3; the same applies to Greek letters (e.g. do not use u if you intend \(\mu\)).

And finally, if you cannot, or are unable to meet these requirements, you are always free to submit a paper-based assignment.


Let me know of any other hints you wish to share with your colleagues on how to effectively use Google Docs.
