Homework Assigments
IMPORTANT NOTE:
You may get no credit for your homework unless it is COMPLETELY LEGIBLE, on standard lettersized paper, stapled (The week's regular homework should be stapled together in a single packet, and the special homework stapled separately.), and identified with your name.
Homework assigned each day will be collected on the following Monday (or Wednesday, if class does not meet on Monday). It is, however, a good idea to do each day's homework before the next class.
Reading assigned each day should be done by the next class. So, for example, Section 1.2, listed on Wednesday January 6, is assigned on Wednesday and should be read by Thursday, January 7.
Most recent assignments posted: Monday, March 8.
