Two types of homework problems

Each week I will select a couple of problems (the number of which will increase as the semester progresses) which will be evaluated primarily for their exposition. As the semester progresses all your problems should begin resembling the well-written ones.

Writing software

While one can use most word-processing 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.

Some standard policies

  • Homework is due at the beginning of class on the listed date. No late homework will be accepted.
  • You should read the material in the textbook as well as attending lecture. Some homework problems may depend on material in the book which is not covered in class.
  • I encourage you to work in groups to solve the problems; your write-ups, however, should be completed individually.
  • I will assign homework on a weekly basis; I expect clearly organized and worded solutions (if you are able and willing to type even better). I will consider anything illegible to be wrong.
