- Homework is by due by
**1:00 PM**on the specified due date. Homework may be submitted:**In-class**the Thursday before it is due.- At
**Dave’s office**, 114 Pomerene Hall before it is due. (Slide it under the door if it is closed.)

- Late homework and homework by e-mail will not be accepted
**under any circumstances**. - Be sure to read each exercise carefully!

Homework assignments are meant to be learning experiences. You may discuss the exercises with other students, but you must write the solutions on your own. Directly sharing or copying any part of a homework solution will be considered an instance of academic misconduct. Any violation will be punished as severely as possible.

Overall neatness is *greatly appreciated*. Happy TAs are happy graders. The following are **absolutely necessary:**

- First and
**last name**with last name underlined. **OSU Username**.`lastname.#`

- A
**staple**in the top left corner for any assignment requiring multiple pages of paper.*Any page after the first of an unstapled homework will not be graded. Paper-clips, folded corners, or any other method will result in the entire assignment being left ungraded.*Yes, we’re serious about this policy. **No fringe**from notebook paper.*Computer paper is greatly preferred.*Paper used must at minimum the standard 8.5 x 11 inches. (Smaller paper is much more likely to be lost.)

Consider purchasing a stapler. Maybe also buy some good paper. Here’s enough to last your entire college career. These two tools are pretty useful.

Each homework will consist of **five** exercises. Each of the five exercises will be graded as follows:

**2 points**: Reasonably simplified, correct final answer and supporting work both written legibly. Final answer is boxed and exercise number is clearly labeled.**1 point**: Any of the above are missing, either: final answer is not reasonably simplified, final answer is incorrect, supporting work is missing, final answer is not boxed, labels are missing or unhelpful.**0 points**: No effort or attempt is made.

Each homework is worth a total of 10 points.
