Schedule

The weekly homework consists of two parts: online WebAssign homework and written homework. Both written homework and online homework are due before the class on Mondays. No late homework will be accepted except medical or family emergency documented by a note from a doctor or a dean.

Online homework should be submitted online. Use the class key columbia 2028 7183 to sign in WebAssign. For questions on purchasing the textbook and WebAssign access, please read the Textbook section of the syllabus carefully. You may submit at most five times for each problem and only the last submission matters. Instructions to the system can be found here.

Written homework should be submitted to the course box on 4th floor of Math building (outside 407). Each week one of TAs is assigned for grading (see the table below). Contact the responsible TA for grading issues. Graded homework will be returned every Monday in class. Those not picked up in class will be stored in my office for 2 weeks for pick-up.
