Homework assignments

The number of points assigned to a problem is a very approximate guide to the number of minutes it should take to solve the problem (e.g. a 10-point question should take approximately 10 minutes). As stated on the syllabus, some questions will be graded on correctness and some on completeness. Only a random subset of questions will be graded at all. Solutions are provided on Moodle and it is the student’s responsibility to check the solutions to all questions.

Assignments must be submitted in hard copy. Handwritten solutions are acceptable. Questions must be clearly numbered and must be presented in the order of the assignment.

You can use the homework revision cover sheet to earn back 50% of the points you lost on any assignment. You can do this for every assignment if you want. (Exception: sorry, but you cannot submit a revision for homework assignment J.) Revisions for homework assignments must be submitted within two weeks of the graded assignment being returned, or by the end of the exam period, whichever is earlier.
