The due date will also be indicated on the instruction file posted on the web site. Reports must be handed in before 5:00PM on the due date. The BSC building is closed after 6:00PM as well as the whole weekend. Can I hand in my report after the due date? Yes, but no more than TWO days past the due date.

By report, we mean: any text, graph, drawing, table, caption or anything else included in the assignment (but the title page). In case of plagiarism, all students involved will receive a ZERO for their assignment and a non‐
formal warning will be issued by the lab coordinator. If plagiarism happens again, a formal report will be sent to the Faculty of Science. Plagiarism from books, friends' work, etc., is considered to be academic fraud and will be dealt wit...
