Comments on Assignments
Please work neatly. You can help me out if you do the following things:
You can help yourself out (and improve your grades) if you:
Use 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
If you use spiral bound paper please remove the "fringe" on the left side.
Label each paper in the upper right with your name, the course (Math 343),
and the problem set number.
If you use multiple sheets, please staple them together.
Use a staple (not a paper clip, not folded and torn corners, etc.).
- Show your reasoning clearly.
- Use words as well as numbers.
- Use English and mathematical language correctly.
The primary purpose of the homework is to help you reinforce concepts
and practice techniques. It is to make sure you are understanding the
material covered in class, to help you generate questions when you don't,
and to provide me with feedback about how you are doing (as individuals and
as a class).
Problems will typically be graded out of a small number
of points (like 3).
In this case, 3 indicates an essentially correct solution,
2 indicates a good attempt with some oversight or technical flaw,
1 indicates an attempt with more serious errors.
In addition, I may write comments on your papers. Be sure to read these,
even if you were awarded full or nearly full marks for a problem.
Collaboration and Academic Integrity
In general, you may discuss homework problems with other students, and I
encourage you to do so. But the written solutions you submit must be
your own work and not simply a copy of another student's work.
There may be special problems assigned for which no collaboration with others
is allowed. In particular,
no collaboration is permitted on any
take-home problems associated with exams.
It will be made clear if collaboration is not allowed on an assigned problem.
Of course, cheating on tests or the final exam is not allowed. Cheating includes the use of unauthorized notes or
devices, copying from another student, or consciously allowing another student
to copy from your work. Details of Calvin's policy on academic integrity can
be found in the College's
Student Conduct Code.
