Homework: Will be assigned weekly and will be due each Thursday unless mentioned otherwise. The homework will be graded by a special grader. Due to lack of funds, it will not be possible to grade all the homework problems assigned. A few of the homework problems will be corrected and graded every week. Nevertheless, for your own benefit, you will be asked to hand in all the homework problems assigned. Your grade on each homework assignement will be calculated as follows:

Late homework will not be accepted. The logistics required to handle late homework is simply too complicated. Instead, three homework grades will be dropped from the final grade. These will include the lowest grades and assignments which were not handed in.
