    Programming Assignments

    What to submit

    Electronic Submission Procedure

    All programming assignments must be submitted electronically. For each assignment, there will be an aptly named folder in your online submit directory.

    Receiving Grade Reports

    Grade reports for each program, as well as an overview of all grades received in the course will be kept for each student in a special directory named 'grades' within the online submit directory.

    Computing Resources at SLU

    An account for each student has been created on,, our department computing cluster. The cluster runs the Linux operating system. It is accessible from both on and off campus by one of the following two ways:

    For more detailed information on access to the cluster, visit, and the link to "Accessing Turing".

    Please note: you are not explicitly required to use turing as your computing platform, it is simply the only platform what we will officially support. If you wish to use another platform that offers you sufficient support for completing your assignments, please feel free to do so. However the slugraphics module is something we have installed on turing, which is not part of the standard Python distribution. You will need to ask for a copy of that code, if you wish to use it on another machine.
