Homework Guidelines -- Math 100

Please abide by the following guidelines when turning in assignments for this course. This will both make grading efficient and help you get the maximum benefit from the work you do.
  1. Unless otherwise stated, assignments are due at 5pm. After that time they may be collected by the grader and graded. Any work that has not been handed in by the time a problem set is collected by the grader is late. You may turn in at most 2 late assignments over the course of the semester.

  2. Problems to be handed in should be worked neatly, showing all of your work and explaining your reasoning. Work left to right and top to bottom, not haphazardly all over the page; use English sentences to explain what you are doing.

    Writing up your answers to homework questions is an important step in learning the material well. It helps you think through the ideas we are studying. Clear presentation will encourage clear thinking. Clearly written and labeled work is also easier to study from later.

  3. Clearly label each page with your name, the course number, my name (Prof. Pruim), and the assignment number (e.g., PS 2). Each problem should be clearly labeled as well. Leave a little space between problems.

  4. Do not put work from more than one problem set on the same sheet of paper.

  5. Before turning in a problem set, put all pages in order and fold the assignment vertically (long and skinny). With the fold on the left (so the paper opens like a book), place your name, the course, and problem set number at the top.

  6. If you use spiral bound paper, please remove the fringe along the edge of the paper. (It catches on other papers and makes it difficult to put the stack together neatly.)
