Paper-and-Pen Homework  

(Updated 24 May 2016)

Homework will be due Fridays at 3pm. Assignments may be turned in to the homework boxes in the basement of AP&M. Please turn assignments in to the correct box corresponding to the section that you attend. The drop box for the homework assignments is NOT the same as the drop box for the MATLAB assignments. They are both located in the basement of AP&M.

  • Late assignments will not be accepted.
  • This course has a grader who is responsible for grading all the homework papers and inputting the grades in Ted. To assist the grader, you should keep all problems in the same order as the assignment list and ordered vertically on your page. All pages must be stapled together.
  • Homework will be returned in discussion section.
  • You must show all of your work.
  • Your solutions must be presented legibly. The grader is under no obligation to grade messy or disorganized homework. (This includes homework that has not been stapled together.)
  • The upper right corner of each assignment must include:
    • Your name
    • Your discussion section (A01, A02, etc.). If you attend a different section from the one in which you are enrolled, specify which is which on your assignment. For example you may write "I am enrolled in A01 but I attend A05"
    • Homework assignment number
  • Detailed solutions to almost all the exercises are posted in this page. The solutions to the questions marked in bold will be posted after the due date. Every week the bolded questions and also two or three of the unbolded questions will be graded. Make sure to think about every exercise for at least 10 minutes and then if you don't succeed in solving the problem you may look at the solution. In any case, your final write up of your homework solutions must be your own work.

    The list of homework assignments is subject to revision during the term. Please check this page regularly for updates.
