# Homework

I will probably assign homework every day (except exam days), covering the material from the lecture given that day, and due the next non-exam class day. However, in case you have any questions about a homework assignment, we can discuss it during the first quarter hour or so of the day that it's due. During this time, I'll try to ensure that everybody knows how to do it. So that you're not working on homework during the lecture, you can always turn in a homework assignment up to one class day late, but I won't take late questions.

Homework problems will come in two forms: Practice Problems and Due Problems; only the Due Problems actually need to be handed in. You don't have to turn in the Practice Problems, but you should try them! If you find them easy, then you can skip to the next batch, but the Practice Problems will usually help you with the Due Problems. In any case, you'll need to practise the material if you want to remember it for the exams, another course, or the rest of your life. Also, the exams will be based on the assigned homework, and you can refer to your completed homework while taking them.

As you do your homework, I encourage you to talk with your fellow students; you can also talk to other people and look at other books. However, the final result that you turn in to me should be your own work, written by you in your own words; you should understand (at least more or less) what you've written. Please don't turn in anything that you simply copied from another person, and don't have other students copy from what you plan to turn in.

In case you miss the homework, you can download it here; see the downloading help if you have trouble. When I return each homework assignment, I'll post my solutions here too; once that happens, I won't accept it late unless you arrange something with me ahead of time.
