There are six written homework assignments this semester:

How to Submit Homework

Write your answers in electronic, mechanical, or wooden pencil, in any type of pen, or in any equation typesetting program. Convert the result to a legible electronic format (PDF preferred), and submit to Gradescope.

Solutions will be posted one week after the submission deadline.

Homework Grading Policy

Grading is for completeness only, not for correctness; you get full credit if you show a good-faith attempt to solve each problem, even if your method is completely wrong. In order for us to see that your submission is complete, we need to be able to read it (at least a little).

You are allowed to submit any homework late, with a penalty: your homework grade will be multiplied by \(\max(0.5,1-t/20)\), where \(t\) is the lateness of your submission, in days (a real number, not an integer). For example, if you’re late by one day, you can earn 95% credit; if you’re late by any number of days greater than 10, you can still earn up to 50% credit.


Warnings about the late penalty

  • Gradescope does not show you the late penalty. If you submit late, and want to calculate your grade, you’ll need to calculate the late penalty yourself, based on the ‘lateness’ that is displayed on Gradescope.

  • The late penalty is not waived for illness, or for any other reason. The late penalty is mild on purpose, so that it is possible to recover from an illness and still submit the homework for most of the available points.
