Instructions for assignment submission:
1) Solutions should be well-crafted and written in complete English sentences. Work will be graded both on accuracy and on the quality of exposition. Solutions must always be legible; use of LaTeX is encouraged and appreciated.
2) Theorems stated in the text and proved in class do not need to be reproved. Other statements should be justified rigorously.
3) Please staple your pages together when you submit your assignment.
An article by Francis Edward Su has good advice about how to write mathematics.
