Questions about a specific homework problem should be posted using the "Post Discussion" located just below the homework problem. Although sufficient assistance can be found on some of the less complicated problems using the "Post Discussion" option, better service is available by working with other students and the graduate teaching assistants in the help room.

The closing time for each homework assignment will be the 11:59PM on Wednesday night 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.

Course material, including homework are posted on the LON-CAPA website. In addition, there is a required textbook for this course.
