I haven't found anything available on the web. If anyone finds a source for errata, let me know.
Homework is posted here.
A new assignment will be posted each Friday and due in class the following Friday.
You may also leave it in my mailbox or under my office door before 11am on Friday.
No late homework will be accepted. I'll grade the homework and return it in section the following Thursday.
I plan to grade about 4 problems per week. Each problem will be worth 3 points. A grade of 0 indicates no solution or a substantially wrong solution. A grade of 3 indicates a correct or nearly correct solution. Otherwise the grade given is 1 or 2 depending upon how much work was put in and how close the solution is to being correct. Be sure to indicate both the solution and how you derived the solution; if in doubt about how much detail to include it is always safer to err on the side of more detail. How neat and clear your solution is also affects the grade I give.
If you believe a problem was misgraded, or I made some addition or other error, please write a short note explaining the situation, attach it to your homework, and return it to me (either in person, in my mailbox, or under my office door). Iíll take a look and return the homework in the next section.
I'll leave graded homework in a box outside my office for those who don't pick it up in section.
I will provide some comments on your homework assignment when I grade it, but it's more efficient for me to write one set of comments and post them to the web. I'll try to provide solutions to all problems also. Feel free to ask about any of the problems in section or office hours as well.
