### Expectations for written work

• This is an upper-level course. Written assignments must be stapled, logically organized, neatly written, and understandable on their own, including mathematical details and complete sentences of explanation.
• General Guidelines: Briefly, treat each written assignment like a job application.
• Problem sets are due at the beginning of class each Monday. No late assignments will be accepted for any reason. If an unforeseen emergency prevents you from completing an assignment, please notify me immediately.
• Work problems in order, clearly indicate which problem is which, and leave ample space for comments. Please do not write on both sides of the page unless your paper is thick enough that a felt-tip pen will not bleed through.
• Academic Honesty: Unless noted to the contrary, you may work with classmates on the problem sets.
• The written work you submit for grading must be written up in your own words.
• You must acknowledge by name any classmates you worked with by writing “I worked with...” at the top of your assignment.
• If you use an external resource, you must give an appropriate formal citation, such as the author of the resource, the complete URL, and the date on which you retrieved the content.
