**Homework Policy**

Starting from the first week of October, each Monday at the end of class homework will
be assigned. It will also be available here. The homework will be collected on Friday. Late
submissions will not be accepted for any reason. You may work together on these
assignments, but you must write up your answers individually. Clearly indicate
the exercise that you are solving by giving the section of the exercise and the
exercise number. If you use more than one piece of paper, staple the pages
together. Do **NOT** do your homework with anything except a pencil or a
pen (**NO MARKERS, COLORED PENCILS, or CRAYONS**).

The total number of points you earn on homework will be converted to a number out of 100 in computing final grades.
