Problems in a HW problem set may be assigned incrementally as material
is covered in class. Work on each HW problems immediately so that you
may resolve your questions early on. Remember: It will be nearly
impossible to do the entire homework well if you leave it to the last
Verbal discussion of HW problems and solution approaches among
classmates in this section is encouraged. But
The purpose of homework is to gain insight into the theoretical and
computational aspects of course topics. It is important that you
keep up with the suggested reading and that you make every effort to
submit as much of the assigned homework as you can so that you may
profit from our feedback. Experience shows that simply filing the
distributed HW solutions away hoping to review them later, is a sure
way to miss acing this course!
your HW submissions must be
ENTIRELY your own. Do not work from anyone else's written solutions or rough drafts of solutions.
For each problem of your HW submission, you must list all
discussants or write "No discussants". (Your grade will not be
affected by this reporting. However, each omission will cause a zero
grade for that problem).
On the due date, submit your HW to the Instructor within the
first 5 minutes of class: No late submissions or makeups, regardless
of late arrivals or absences, will be accepted. Please don't ask for
Your feedback on grading issues is useful and very welcome, if stated by following
