General Guidelines

**On exams, solutions need to be well written
and explained in order to obtain credit, answers only are not accepted.

**The purpose of the homework sets are for you to work through the understanding of the material and see what it is you do and do not understand so that you can fine tune your understanding from there -- please keep this viewpoint in mind when working through problems.

**Educational research shows that studying and learning in peer groups often leads to better comprehension of the material.  Get to know your classmates and form study groups.

**The other side of the coin is that just as beneficial to your learning is time spent grappling with the material alone.  Always do your final homework writeups on your own, and feel free to reach for help when you need it.  This helps you to know what it is that you really do or don't understand

**If you are suspected of copying/cheating, you will
get a zero for the homework set, and will be reported to University authorities.

*Please look at the following interesting graph of
material retention vs. time lapse from first exposure until review (retention curve) and the subsequent tips for textbook reading

Keep this in mind when writing up your homework solutions -- it IS as important for learning math to practice explaining your solutions as it is finding them!

*Mathematics is a language.
