Section 2, 11am MWF, Jacobs JA B134
Written homework will be collected twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays. It is due by 1pm in the envelopes in the basket outside my office, Olin 1281. You are encouraged to discuss the homework with other members of the class, but you are expected to write up your solutions without any assistance. It is appropriate to acknowledge the assistance of others. I reserve the right to refuse to accept late homework for any reason.
The HMC Honor Code applies to all aspects of Math 13. Note that some of the homework problems in this course have been assigned in previous semesters. Copying work from published solutions (or solutions of past students) is a violation of the HMC Honor Code and will be dealt with accordingly.
