MATH 5405 -- Homework
Homework in mathematics should always be completed with the same care as in other subjects: write clearly. Some questions require short answers only, but if written sentences are expected, then you should use correct English grammar, spelling and punctuation. In most cases (just as in writing English essays), the submitted version will probably not be the first draft.
It is not necessary to rewrite the questions when you write up homework solutions. If you choose to do so, however, you should clearly separate the question from your answer.
Always indicate your name and the homework number (as HW#1, HW#2, etc.) on each homework assignment so that it will not be misplaced or delayed (until I have time to figure out the correct homework number).
Remember to write up homework yourself. Although you are encouraged to work together with others, the submitted homework should be your own work and not a copy of someone else's.
I expect you to submit each completed homework assignment on the specified due date. I will accept homework one or two days late unless it seems to me that this is becoming a chronic or widespread occurrence. However, I will not accept late homework after I have already returned the graded assignment to the rest of the class.
If you arrive at class without your homework completed, I would prefer that you participate in the class rather than spending that time writing up your homework. In this situation I would ask you to hand in your homework a few hours later, without penalty.
