Homework 




Two kinds of homeworkHomework will come in two flavors. Problem based homework. These assignments focus on learning the mathematical content of the course. Writing based homework. These assignments focus on the communication of mathematics. Eventually the expectation will be that the techniques you develop on your writing homeworks will carry over onto the problem based assignments. That is, by the end of the semester the writing on the problem based assignments should be at the same level as those of the writing based assignments. 

Writing softwareWhile one can use most wordprocessing programs for typing in mathematics, those of you interested in pursuing careers in the sciences (or related fields) may want to consider learning some version of LaTeX. This program has the advantage that documents written look right, even if they are not necessarily mathematically correct. If there is general interest, we may spend a class going over the basics of this editing language, including information on how to obtain and install the (free) software.
