assignments will be updated as needed if typos
are found (please let me know if you find any). Please be
sure to refresh your browser as needed to ensure you are looking at the
most recent version.
there are two editions of our course text, the problems from the text will be written
out and will be labeled as
S1r (for the 1st
Ed., Revised) and S2 (for the
2nd Ed.). Occasionally these problems will be modified
from their original form in terms of what you have to calculate or what
method you have to use to solve the problem, in which case they will be
labeled as "modified."
in: To hand in your homework, please leave your
solutions (hard copies)
in the departmental mailbox of our course grader, Robert
Siller, unless otherwise indicated. The
departmental mailboxes are on the 2nd
floor of Chamberlin Hall, across from the main office.
Homework sent via email will
not be accepted unless there is prior approval from Prof.
Late homework will not
be accepted! The only exceptions may be in
cases of genuine emergencies. Such situations must be discussed
Prof. Everett. If you do miss an assignment, it is
complete it and hand it in to Prof. Everett directly before the end of
the term. Missed assignments will not be graded, but your
effort will be noted in the final grade determination.
Please show your work clearly.
If it is not
possible for the grader to follow your solution because of presentation
issues, your solution may be marked wrong. To avoid this, follow
these general guidelines:
- Use 8.5 x 11" paper: no small notebook paper or
- Do not write on the backs of pages
- Box your final answers
- Be sure to show your work neatly (either don't use
pen, or recopy).
These guidelines hold also if you want to submit your
MSWord, LaTeX, pdf, postscript, or another computer generated format,
such as a Mathematica notebook file. A failure to follow these guidelines may
points deducted from your total score on the assignment
in question. The number of points deducted will be at the
discretion of the grader.
Scoring: Homework will be graded out of 5
points per problem, with 5=perfect, 4=good effort, 2=some effort,
1=little effort, and 0=no effort.
Grading questions: All
questions about homework grades must be directed to Prof. Everett, who
will consult with the grader if needed.
