Homework: Weekly problem sets will be assigned to elucidate the material covered in lectures and teach you how to solve problems. The homework should be handed in to the P114 locker assigned to your workshop leader prior to the deadline. These boxes are at the bottom of the main staircase on the first floor of B&L. The homework assignments will be posted on the web P114 homework page 10 days prior to the deadline. The solutions will be posted on the homework solutions webpage 5 days after the deadline. It is crucial that you work through these problem sets or you will have serious problems with the examinations.
Class Quizzes: Weekly 5-minute multiple-choice quizzes will be given.
Reading Assignments: Lecture notes will be given prior to each lecture which must be read prior to the next lecture. The class quizzes may include a question taken from that reading assignment due that day, to help encourage you to do the pre-lecture reading.
