# Homework

Homework will be assigned every week and will generally be due on Monday. Homework solutions should be written legibly in pen or pencil or typed and should be turned in on time. Late homework will not be accepted without advance approval. Homework will be posted on this website (below).

If you haven't already please make sure you sign and turn in the FERPA Waiver.

# Homework Difficulty

The homework problems will cover a wide range of difficulty. In particular, it is expected that some of the problems will be too difficult. While it would be great to solve all the problems, and you will learn a great deal if you can do so, it is worth spending time grappling with difficult concepts and then going over problems on which you may have made some progress but were not able to complete. I am happy to talk to you about the problems and to provide hints, so please come to my office hours if you would like to discuss them.

### Homework announcements

Problems are from the textbook unless otherwise noted.
