Periodically I will assign homework problems that I will grade. These will be due at the beginning of the next class, and the scores for these will play a (small) role in your final course grade.
I consider the problems assigned from the book to be routine practice problems. You should be able to do all of these, though some may take a little thought. I will mark the harder ones on the assignments with an asterisk (*). If you find that you are having trouble doing many of the book problems, you should ask questions about them in class or come to my office hours.
While you may work with other students on homework problems, you must cite the students involved and briefly explain the role each played in doing the homework, and you must each write up your final results independently. See the collaboration policy for more details.
See the study suggestions for some helpful hints on homework.
