## Homework Due Dates

Homework is due Thursdays 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!

You need hand in only the starred problems. In fact I prefer that you
don't hand in the others, so that I don't have to sift through them.

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 all of and only the starred problems. 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.

## Homework Comments

Comments for graded problems are provided
here. They are in PDF format which you can view using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Note that homework solutions will be written up by Prof. Hida and distributed
before each exam.

Note that when homework scores are recorded on MyUCLA, I divide the homework
score by two and then round up since the MyUCLA points (1 point per problem) are
always half of the points I assign (2 points per problem). For problems
with multiple stars (*), each star is worth 2 points in my grading, or 1 point
in MyUCLA grading.

- Homework 1
- Homework 2: no special comments
- Homework 3: The maximum possible score was 30; the maximum possible MyUCLA
score was thus 15.
- Homework 5: The maximum possible score was 30; the maximum possible MyUCLA
score was thus 15.
