Supervisions: Times and Places
Easter Term 2020
When to submit work
Work for supervisions this term should arrive in my inbox by 8pm two days before the day of the supervision. So if the supervision is on a Thursday (no matter what time on Thursday) then the work is due in by 8pm on Tuesday. If the supervision is on a Monday (no matter what time on Monday) then the work is due in by 8pm on Saturday. And so on. See below for how to send it.
I shall return the work by e-mail the evening before the supervision, which will hopefully give you chance to print out a marked copy if you want to do that.
All times are given in BST, British Summer Time, which is the current time zone in use in the UK. It is one hour ahead of GMT.
How to submit work
- Form the work into a single .pdf file, with the pages in the right order. You might want to use software such as camscanner if you have done the work on paper. If you do use camscanner, sign up with a cam.ac.uk e-mail address and you should get the premium version without paying.
- If you can't get the pages to be in the right order (and right rotation) then include in your e-mail an unambiguous description of what needs to be done to them. (For example: "swap the current pages 7 and 8, move page 1 to the end, then rotate the new page 3 clockwise by π/2".)
- Give the file the name W_[crsid]_[work code].pdf replacing [crsid] with your crsid (which is the part of your e-mail address before the @) and [work code] with a code depending on which piece of work it is. The codes are in the table where the work is set. So, for example, if your crsid is spqr1 (because your Cambridge e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org) then for the first week's regular supervision work you should submit a file called W_spqr1_W1.pdf
- Attach the file(s) to an e-mail sent to me, preferably to email@example.com, though if it makes you any happier you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org instead.
- Make sure that it will arrive in time. If it won't, don't send it, but instead identify which bits you found difficult and remember to ask about them in the supervision.
