Homework: Homework will be posted on the course website and will be due approximately weekly. Typical assignments will include some exercises that are to be turned in as well as additional practice problems. Homework may be submitted in class or at my office, but it should be completed by the posted due date. Additional time will only be given if requested before the due date and if appropriate for the circumstances. You should not consult any solutions manual in preparing your assignments. You are encouraged to work with your fellow students on the homework, but your written solutions must be your own. Solutions will be made available (as PDF files) on the course website shortly after they are due. Topics and Assignments are posted in the Course Calendar.
