Homework, Labs, and Quizzes

  • Homework will be assigned after each lecture, see HERE for the assignments. We do not plan to collect homework. But you are supposed to do them all. Remember: the more problems you do, the better you understand the material. The homework is not pledged. You are encouraged to discuss the problems. However, each student is responsible for the final preparation of his/her own homework papers.
  • SageMath Labs will be assigned and graded by the TA.
  • There will be weekly quizzes on Wednesday, at the end of each recitation session. The quiz problems will be either the same as, or very similar to those from the homework. Thus, if a student has made a good attempt at the homework, he/she should do well on the quiz. The lowest quiz grade will be dropped from the final grade calculation.
  •  Download Quizzes and Solutions.
