Guidelines

On each homework assignment, please write (i) your name, (ii) name of course, and (iii) homework number. You are allowed and encouraged to work together on homework. Yet, each student is expected to turn in his or her own work. In general, late homework will not be accepted. However, you are allowed to turn in up to three late homework assignments with no questions asked. Unless you have made arrangements in advance with me, homework turned in after class will be considered late. When doing your homework, I encourage you to consult the Elements of Style for Proofs as a reference.

Homework

The following assignments are to be turned in at the end of the indicated class period. I reserve the right to modify the assignment if the need arises. These exercises will form the basis of the student-led sharing of solutions/proofs each day. Homework assignments will be graded on a $\checkmark$-system. During class, you are only allowed to annotate your homework using the colored marker pens that I provide.

  • Homework 1: Read the syllabus and write down 5 important items. Note: All of the exam dates only count as a single item. Turn in on your own paper at the beginning of class. (Due Wednesday, August 30)
  • Homework 2: Stop by my office (AMB 176) and say hello. If I'm not there, just slide a note under my door saying you stopped by. (Due by 5PM on Friday, September 1)
