before coming to class.

**Homework**

The homework
is a very
important part of the course.
In
order to do well on the tests, it is necessary to do the
homework. Every
week, exercises will be assigned
and a subset of those will be turned in for grading. You should try to do
as many exercises
assigned or otherwise.
Sometimes exercises will be assigned in class. Usually the
short quizzes will be
very similar to the exercises (turned in or otherwise).
