There will be ten homework assignments. You are encouraged to discuss the homework problems and solution strategies with your peers, but you need to work out your own solutions. You will be given credit for what is on your paper, done in a logical, orderly way. In addition, you are expected to be able to explain the solutions you turn in and will not receive credit for solutions you cannot explain. All assignments will be graded.
