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. A majority of the homework problems will be drawn from a PROBLEM SET associated with the Course Notes. When posting an assignment, I will tell you which section it is from as well as which problems you are expected to turn in. On occasion, problems from another source will be assigned.
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.

LabsFor a description of the labs see the lab page.
Clicker UsageWe will be using clickers for this course. These can be purchased at the bookstore. More information regarding clickers can be found at the UBC e-learning website . Note that you must tie your clicker to your student number through the Vista system. If you do not do this, I will not know you participated and you will not receive credit.
Please have your clicker out and at the ready at the beginning of every lecture. You will have to key in a code so that your clicker will be recognized by the receiver in the room. I will try to give you a reminder and this code will be posted at the beginning of every lecture (though it will be the same for every lecture). The first two lectures (Jan. 4, 6) will allow you to get used to the equipment and deal with any malfunctions and so will not be graded. Official grading of clicker participation will begin on Monday Jan. 9.
Clicker participation will count for 5% of your final grade. A few questions will be posed throughout each lecture. These are NOT quizzes and you will not be graded on correctness, only on participation. If you participate in 80% of the clicker questions throughout the term, you will receive full marks.
The use of clickers is intended to enhance your classroom experience. So please, be honest with your responses.
