There are written assignments which are due once a week. Further details are provided both by the above links (but you've looked at those already) as well as below.

The weekly written homework assignments will be posted here.

• Written homework should be turned in to the homework boxes outside of Kemeny 008 by 3 pm on the due date. More details will follow.
• Make sure that you show all your work and explain all the steps. A correct answer with no work shown will receive minimal credit. This is good practice for what will be expected on exams.
• Make sure your homework is neatly written; if the graders cannot read it, you will receive zero credit. We also have some technical requirements: Use standard-sized paper that does not have ragged edges from being torn out of a spiral notebook.
