# Homework Assignments

Please note that the total score on your homework assignments counts
for 30% of your final grade. This reflects the fact that you won't
learn
the material without applying it. Unless, otherwise stated,
homework that must be submitted on paper is due in class on the listed
date. Homework to be submitted via the computer is due by 11:59PM
on the listed date.
Always submit at least part of your homework to the drop box
provided on ANGEL.
That will permit me to provide your score and any comments online.

For Programming Homeworks please read and follow my programming
guidelines. This will make you lives easier later if you try
to adapt your work to other projects, and my life easier when I try to
grade it. After Homework 2, failure to follow these guidelines will
result in loss of points.

### Basic Requirements for Homework Reports:

Your report on each homework and the final project must be internally
complete. That means that someone who sat in on class lectures,
but never read the homework assignments could read your report and
understand the problem that you were assigned, your method of solution,
and your final results. In addition to information specifically
requested in each homework, conclude your report with a section titled
"Observations". In this section as appropriate:

- relate results and your general experience with the homework to
material covered in class;
- note any unexpected behavior in your results;

For Programming Homeworks please read and follow my programming
guidelines. This will make you lives easier later if you try
to adapt your work to other projects, and my life easier when I try to
