 The assignment page has been updated to include the reading to be assigned on Wednesday.

Homework Assignments
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, and you have restated each problem before solving it. (Saying what you are doing is an important part of clearly explaining.)
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, Sections 1.1 and 1.2, listed on Monday, January 6, are assigned on Monday and should be read by Wednesday, January 8, and Section 1.3, listed on Wednesday, January 8, is due on Thursday, January 9, since we are meeting during the xhour that day.
