Homework Assignments

Generally, but not always, due on Mondays by 4:10pm. Staple pages, clearly indicated answers, no ragged edges (kadoobies), put in correct box, ... .
The graders have been given discretion to penalize homeworks for poor presentation, don't make their jobs harder.

Homework Solutions

I think it's important to study the solutions independently of your score on a particular homework.

P221 Bulletin Board

Feel free to ask questions about the course here. I will always read your posts and respond when appropriate. Any student may also respond. This is a good way to collaborate as a class. You can set notifications so you will know if anyone responds to your post. One of the advantages of using the board is that you can display equations in a way in which they can be easily read.
