Logistics for handing in homework
The homework is due on Wednesdays at 9am. Homework
submissions will be handled electronically via the
Gradescope platform. Students registered for the course
at the end of the first weekend should receive an email
to sign up for Gradescope. Otherwise, please contact
your instructor starting the morning of January 16th.
Gradescope accepts only electronic submissions, so
you will need to scan your homework before uploading
it. Make sure to allot plenty of time to follow the
submission instructions here before each
deadline.
Assignments will be posted no later than a week
before they are due. Any change to a posted assignment
will be announced in class and via email.
For the written assignments
Be sure to show
your work (helps with partial credit and lets us
comment on your process).
Remember: calculators are not allowed
for the exams and homework is one way to help prepare
yourself for the tests. Therefore, you should
avoid using a calculator when completing your
homework. However, there are some homework problems
that we feel are important for building conceptual
understanding and yet need a calculator. Such problems
are indicated below with a superscript "T".
Practice problems
Along with each assignment, there is also a list of
"Practice Problems." These are not to be turned in but are
strongly encouraged. You cannot succeed in this class
without doing the practice problems. Given the large
number of practice problems, you might want to look at
some each week while completing the homework and save
others for refreshing the material throughout the
quarter/exam studying.
Most of these practice problems are odd numbers,
meaning you can check your work by looking at the
answers in the back of your textbook. Practice problems
that are even numbered at great to discuss with your
peers and/or in office hours.
Solutions to the homework assignments will be posted here within a week after the due date.
