## Math 285 Homework, Spring 2010

Beginning of Announcements.

Your homework must start with a cover sheet. Print the sheet for either Section F1 (2pm) or Section G1 (3pm).
All homework must be stapled. All answers that are formulas must be boxed, in your solutions.
Tips on using Wolfram Alpha are now available. Use Wolfram Alpha to investigate homework problems, check your answers, and more.

End of Announcements.

Homework must be turned in by the end of class on the due date. Late homework will be accepted only if you have made prior arrangement with me. Exceptions will be made, for example, in case of serious illness or family emergency.

Form a study group to discuss the homework problems. But write up your own solutions: you will only learn properly if you think the problems through for yourself.

Try asking and answering questions at the Google discussion group. Please title your post with the number of the relevant homework problem (such as "3.2 #17"). The professor and TAs will sometimes respond to posts, but the intention of the group is for students to discuss the homework with each other.

The median scores on the Homeworks so far are: 9, 8.5, 9, 9.5, 9, 9.5, 9.5, 9 9, 8, 9, (all out of 10)
The median score on Test 1 is: 60/75
The median score on Test 2 is: 83/100

Grading scheme: on each homework out of 10 points, the grade will be assigned as follows:

• 10 - almost perfect work
• 8 - about four fifths of the work is correct
• 6 - about three fifths of the work is correct
• 1-5 - half or less of the work is correct (as judged by the grader)
I will drop your 2 lowest homework scores.
