Homework problems will typically be graded on a 3 point scale: 1-2 points if partially (or poorly) completed; 3 points if the problem is completed and appears correct. All homework will be collected in class at the start of the class. Late homework will not be accepted without prior permission. Students may work together and should check their answers against the posted solutions. There will also be unannounced quizzes periodically, perhaps even daily! It is your responsibility to make sure you are prepared for every class.
