Homework PoliciesHomework will generally be due one week after it is assigned. All assignments will be posted on this website and I will let you know in class when a new assignment is posted.
All homework must be turned in by the beginning of class on the due date. NO LATE HW WILL BE ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. Homework can be turned in at class or my office hours. Also, scanned and e-mailed homework will not be accepted. For each assignment, selected problems will be graded thoroughly (usually on a 3, 4, or 5 point scale depending on the complexity of the problem) and the rest will be graded as either attempted or not attempted (for 0 or 1 point). Solutions for ALL assigned problems will be posted. In most cases, homework will be returned within 1 week of its due date.
Begin early. The best time may be shortly following the lecture while the material is still fresh in your mind. This is your time to determine if you understand the concepts. If not, look at the course notes. If that does not help, come see me in office hours. It is also useful to work with your classmates in order to share ideas and compare results. The work you submit however should be your own.
Keep your work organized and legible. A correct final answer is NOT sufficient to receive full credit on a graded problem. All work must be shown in a CLEAR and NEAT fashion. Problems which are not legible will NOT be graded!
The following policies must be followed on each and every homework assignment.
