# Homework

I will assign homework nearly every day, covering the material from the previous day, and due the next 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 may always turn in homework assignments up to one class day late.

Homework problems will come in two forms: Practice problems and Due problems. Generally, the Practice problems will come from the textbook, while I will write the Due problems myself, (although there may be exceptions). 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 exam, a subsequent course, or the rest of your life.

If you miss the homework, you can download it here in either PostScript or PDF form. After I return a homework assignment, I'll post my solutions here too.
