Homework and Quizzes

Homework is worth 20% of your grade. There will be about 10 HW sets (multiple choice questions to be completed via e-learning) in the course. No late homeworks will be accepted. However, your worst HW score will not be counted. You should view the homework questions as excellent preparation for the midterms and final. Quizzes, which are not for credit, are occasionally given to provide further practice questions.

If you are having difficulties with HW questions, your first approach should be to review the class notes to see if they help. Next refer to the textbook. Some guidance and hints for HW questions will be given in the discussion sections and office hours. If you cannot make these times, you can try to arrange another time with me. I prefer not to give help with homework questions by email, because this can be extremely time consuming given the number of students in the class, and hints are usually given through a process of conversation with the student, which is inefficent by email.

Homeworks and Quizzes will appear here (remember to refresh your browser) and on the e-learning site. Answer the questions via e-learning and KEEP A RECORD OF YOUR ANSWERS to check against the solutions, which are posted later.
