Expectations for written work

This is an upperlevel 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
felttip 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.
