Including reference with homework submissions

9:37 PM, Friday February 16th 2024

I've seen quite a few homework submissions where the reference is included also. Question for the TAs actually reviewing + critiquing submissions - does the included reference actually help at all in evaluating the work? Is it cinsidered at all in reviewing the submission? I ask mostly becasue providing reference with the submissions isn't in the homework descriptions (that I've seen so far, up to lesson 4). Thanks!

It doesn't hurt to include your references, but they aren't always necessary. If we think seeing them will help us convey part of our critique more effectively, we may ask for them if they weren't provided - but if you happen to have them, it can help save a little time to include them with your submission. Not a huge deal either way though.

One thing to keep in mind is that we're not terribly concerned with how well your construction matches your reference - we focus more on how you're building up your construction itself. The reference simply serves as a source of information to help you decide which forms to add over the course of the process.

A lot of my students use these. The last time I used them was when I was in high school, and at the time I felt that they dried out pretty quickly, though I may have simply been mishandling them. As with all pens, make sure you're capping them when they're not in use, and try not to apply too much pressure. You really only need to be touching the page, not mashing your pen into it.

In terms of line weight, the sizes are pretty weird. 08 corresponds to 0.5mm, which is what I recommend for the drawabox lessons, whereas 05 corresponds to 0.45mm, which is pretty close and can also be used.
