Problem sets will be assigned each Friday, and will be collected on the
following Friday. You should begin work on them as soon as possible, as
many problems will require that you think about them more than once.
Starting on a problem set does not mean just beginning the first problem or
two and leaving the rest for later; you should get in the habit of reading
through *all* the problems, and working on them a little bit each day.
The harder problems frequently come at the end, so it is not in your best
intrest to leave these until the night before they are due. One of the
reasons for giving you a week to work on the problems is so you can ask
questions about them during class; be sure to take advantage of this by
starting on all the problems early.

You should use the following guidelines for the problem sets that you turn in:

- Please
*staple*your pages together, and*trim the left edge*if they are torn out of a spiral notebook. Unstapled or ragged pages will not be graded. - Your solutions are due at the beginning of class on the day they are
due. Late papers will not be graded.
- Please print on only one side of the paper, clearly and legibly.
- Please leave some space in the margins or between problems for my
comments.
- Do not use graph paper except for graphs. Use lined paper for written
work.

Copies of the best solutions will be made available in a notebook outside my office. If I circle a problem number in red on an assignment that you turn in, that means I have made a copy of your answer and placed it in this notebook (this is just for your information). See the discussion of course handouts for more about this notebook.

See the discussion of the grading policy for the percentage of your grade that will come from your quizzes, and for policy on missed and dropped problem sets.
