Textbook Errata

There are some errors in the textbook, but most corrections should be found on the authors' errata page here.

Homework Due Dates

Homework is due Fridays by 11am.
No late homework will be accepted.  Hand in what you have done by the deadline, but make sure you understand how to solve all of the problems before the next test.

You may give the homework to me in section, leave it in my mailbox, or slip it under my office door.  Do not leave it outside my office!

I will return the graded homework to you in the next section.  If you cannot attend, I'll leave it outside my office in the hallway so pick it up from there.

Homework Grading

I will grade roughly half of the problems for each assignment.  Each problem is worth 2 points. A grade of 0 indicates no solution or a substantially wrong solution. A grade of 2 indicates a correct or nearly correct solution. Otherwise the grade given is 1.

Due to the large number of students and problems to grade, I am unable to provide much in the way of comments on your paper.  I'm sorry about this, but I will try to write up general comments for each assignment and post them to this web page.  If you have specific questions about any problem, please ask me after section or in office hours.
