Office hours | Mondays and Wednesdays 2-3pm in SEO 503 |
Exam week office hours | Monday, Dec 6, 1-4pm |
Homework Policies | Homework problems will be assigned on Mondays and Wednesdays, and occasionally on Fridays. |
Homework is due by 4pm on the first lecture day of each week (usually Monday) and can be turned in during lecture or directly to the grader's mailbox (Jonah Gaster) in the mailroom on the 3^{rd} floor of SEO. | |
The list of challenge problems (see course materials) will be updated on a regular basis; you must complete four of these problems during the semester, with at least two of them submitted before the midterm exam. | |
Late homework will not be accepted. | |
You can discuss the homework with other students, but you must write (and understand!) your own solutions. | |
The homework problems depend on material from both the assigned reading and the lectures. Do not leave the problem sets or reading to the last minute! |

When computing your homework grade, the lowest weekly homework score will be dropped, and the remaining scores will be averaged with your challenge problem scores. (That is, each challenge problem is worth as much as a weekly homework assignment!)
