  • Homework will be due each Monday on the material of the subsequent week. The Friday discussion hour is an opportunity for you to ask questions about the homework. The homework problems will be challenging and it is essential that you have thought about the homework before comming to the discussion hour. You should also feel free to ask questions regarding the lecture that have come up then (or during class of course). I will drop your 2 lowest homework scores in computing the homework average. This is to allow for life's little emergencies in case you have to miss turning in 1 or 2 homeworks. Late homework will not be accepted.
