Questions about a specific homework problem should be posted using the "Post Discussion" located just below the homework problem.

The closing time for each homework assignment will be the 5:00PM on Thursday afternoon as shown on the calendar. Late homework will not be accepted:-- the closing time will be strictly enforced. Enter your solutions early to avoid computer/network woes close to the deadline.
