Homework
- There are 8 written homework assignments. The homework assignments are to be turned in by the due date and time into the homework box of our TA, Wei Yin. The homework boxes are located in the basement of the Applied Physics and Math building to your left when exiting the main elevator or stairs to the basement.
- The homework assignments will be graded by the grader. The grading will be as follows: 75\% for full completion of the homework with a reasonable attempt to solve every problem. To determine the final 25\% two problems on each homework set will be chosen at random to be graded by the grader. These problems will be graded for completeness and correctness. Expect that at least one of these two problems will be one of the harder problems on the problem set.
- To get credit on the homeworks, you must justify your answers. If you have the correct answer but no work shown for how to get the answer you will receive no points.
