Homework Assignments Policy:

- Homework will be collected at the beginning of lecture each Wednesday starting on Jan 12.
- Homework
will
be
collected
ONLY
IN
CLASS:
for example, I will NOT accept homework submission at my office.
This policy is to motivate students keep attending the lectures.

- Late
homework will not be accepted.

A missed homework will result in 0 mark.

Two lowest homework grades will be dropped in computing the grade. - Your homework should be written in a clear manner so that the
grader can understand easily
what you are doing. Also it should
be handwritten neatly.

- Unreadable or very hard to read homework may get zero or very low mark.
- You are encouraged to discuss the homework with other students,
but you must produce and write the solutions on your own.

- It is probable that only a subset of those problems turned in would be graded, and you will not be informed (in advance) which ones these are. For example, if your homework does not contain any of the problems to be graded (which will be decided after the deadline), you will get zero mark. So, it would be better for you to do all the problems to be handed in.
