## Homework policies

**General homework policies**:

- Homeworks assignments are posted on this website. The due date and time, usually one week after posting, are indicated.
- All homeworks must either be typed or written in legible handwriting. You will lose points for illegible homework.
- Homeworks must be handed in as a hard copy unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor or TAs.
- Mathematical expressions must be clearly presented with all variables defined.
- The logic and
*significance*of the results in your homeworks must be discussed in clear English. - Any code you wrote for calculations must be included in the homework you turn in.
- If you are asked to "sketch" a plot, you may (and should) draw it by hand. If you are asked to "plot" something, you must use a plotting program, such as Matlab, Gnuplot, Matplotlib, etc., to generate the plot.
- Graded homeworks are returned one week after they are submitted.

**Reference policy**: You may not refer to homework problems
from previous editions of this course. You also may not refer to
solutions manuals, etc., for problems assigned from textbooks. In
general, "homework by Google" is ill-advised. Slogging through a
tough problem is often the best way to learn a concept, which is the
whole point of the homework.

**Late policy**: No late homeworks will be accepted after the
due date and time unless you have a note from someone like a doctor or
dean. There are no exceptions to this rule.

**Collaboration policy**: You are encouraged to discuss the
homework with your classmates, but your explanations and derivations
must be your own.
