HOMEWORK:  There will be roughly N=10 homework assignments, handed out weekly and due on Fridays at 12:00 (noon). The homework portion of your final grade will be calculated based on your best N1 assignment marks. The homework deadline is strict and late assignments will receive a mark of zero, with no exceptions. I encourage you to work together with your classmates on your assignment solutions; however, your written homework submission must be your own work. Plagiarism on homework assignments is a serious academic offense, and I will treat it as such.
