Homework

I will probably assign homework every day (except exam days), covering material that I will lecture on briefly that day, and due the next non-exam class day. We will discuss this material during the first part of class on the day that the homework is due. During this time, I'll try to ensure that everybody knows how to do it; then there will be a quiz on it. The homework problems will come from the textbook.

You don't have to turn in the homework, but you should do it! If you find some problems easy, then you can skip to the next batch, but you'll need to practise the material if you want to remember it for exams, a subsequent course, or the rest of your life. Also, the quizzes will be taken from the homework, and you can use your completed homework while taking the quizzes!

As you do your homework, I encourage you to talk with your fellow students. This is not cheating! However, the quizzes and exams have to be your own work.

In case you miss the homework assignment in class, you can find it here. Any undated assignment is tentative.
