This page lists the section topics for each week, as well as the section homework that is due at the beginning of section each week.

Written Assignments

Each week we will assign a written homework assignment to be turned in and discussed in section. These are meant as "warm up" problems to get you thinking about the topics we cover that week. It will be graded for effort, not for whether or not you have the right answers. You will receive 1 points for each written assignment you bring to section, and 2 points for attendance. The maximum number of section attendance/hw points that you can receive is 20. (This point total is doubled at the end of the quarter so that the section total is worth as much as one homework assignment. As a guideline, we expect you to spend around 20 to 30 minutes on each written assignment. If you find yourself spending much more than that, then you can stop working and let your TA know that you ran out of time.

You will not be graded on whether you have a perfect solution, but on whether you have demonstrated a reasonable effort (a good guideline is that we expect you to put in half an hour of work). Therefore please show some work that demonstrates how you got the answer rather than just writing the answer by itself.
