Look for the homework problems, their due date, and their solutions on this page. Homework will not be accepted once the solution has been posted on the web page – usually within 2 hours of the due date. Correctly solved problems (work and result) bring 2 points, attempts showing work and possibly a wrong result bring 1 point, everything else brings 0 points.

Remarks: Please do submit your homework in a form that allows me to track your train of thought. If you do not write down your work, there are several consequences:

-         You may lose track of what you are doing.

-         There is no partial credit.

-         Neither you nor I have any idea why your answer was wrong, and you will repeat the mistake.

Be generous in using space to write down your solutions! The backpage of the problems, or extra pages are possibilities.



Due 9/2/05        solution
