**Calculator Policy**: No calculators, computers, cell phones, or other calculating or communicating devices are allowed.

**Homework**:
is posted on the website. I will try to post the problems many days in advance. However, check the list after each class since the
list of problems may be updated (depending on what we cover in each lecture).
**You need to solve the assigned homework problems after each lecture,** and before the following one.

The problems listed consist of:

**1)** **Practice problems** (usually
consisting of odd numbered problems)

Occasional **quizzes** (in the last 5-10
minutes of the class) will usually consist of problems very similar to these.
The quizzes will be worth 5 points each. No make-up quizzes will be allowed,
but the two lowest scored will be dropped.

**2)** **Problems that need to be solved, solutions
written up and turned in for grading on Mondays**.
The grader will randomly choose three problems for grading, each worth 2
points: one for a good solution, one for a good presentation and sufficient
explanations. Always justify your answers and calculations! **No late homework will be accepted.**

**3)** There will sometimes be **bonus
problems** posted. These are optional. Please do write up solutions to bonus
problems by the following Monday, on a separate sheet of paper, with your name, and hand it in at the
same due date as the homework, just in a separate pile.

**Tests**: The midterm exams are
tentatively scheduled for Feb 2 and Feb. 23.

Here is the first assigned homework. You need to solve these problems by tomorrow's lecture! Please check also the website, to make sure you know how to find your daily homework.
