The homework assignments for this course will be available a week before their due date on the website for this course. Homework is due by the beginning of class on Thursdays (note: there is no homework the first week or the week of the midterm).

There will be eleven assignments in all, and each assignment will have five or six exercises. Your solutions should be polished and easy to follow, with proofs written in paragraph form using complete sentences. Your goal is to achieve the same sort of clarity in your homework as Stein and Shakarcki demonstrate in their textbook. Homework assignments done in LaTeX are encouraged, but not required.

Each exercise will be graded on the following 0 to 4 scale:

The sum of your top ten homework grades (after resubmission) will be your homework score for the course (i.e., your lowest homework grade will be dropped).
