This also applies to homework handed in under one's own name. Specifically, the instructor has nothing against students discussing homework assignments provided such cooperation is explicitly acknowledged in the homework handed in. Of course, each student separately hands in homework and, by putting his or her name onto the homework, certifies that this is their own work. If they have discussed some or all of the problems with others and this has influenced what they finally produced, such influence should be explicitly acknowledged. Merely copying someone else's homework is unacceptable, even if the copy explicitly states that this was copied from so-and-so's homework.

Mark all homework clearly with your name. In addition, put the first letter of your last name boldly into the upper left corner of the first page of your homework, to make it easier for us to sort it and for you to find it again when it is handed back.

The present plan is to give an assignment every week, due at beginning of class on Monday of the next week, to include (perhaps) some T/F questions in addition to several problems some of which might ask you to prove something. (to top)

- Any homework not handed in by the BEGINNING of the class period of the due date loses 10%.
- Any homework not handed in by 5p of the due date loses 25%.
- Any homework not handed in by noon of the day after the due date loses 100%.
- To `hand in' homework outside class, put it into the instructor's mailbox (fifth floor of CS & Stat) or hand it directly to the instructor (if you can find him :-).
