solutions are to be handed in at the beginning of class on
Wednesday's lecture, beginning in Week 2. No late homework will be accepted.
However, your lowest homework score will be dropped when
computing your grade. You are encouraged to work together on the
exercises, but any graded assignment should represent your own
work.
