Submission Guidelines

You must prepare your problem set as a LaTeX document. If you're unfamiliar with with LaTeX, click here for a bare-bones introduction. Starting with Problem Set 2, if for any reason you are not using LaTeX and/or your notation is not clear, points will be deducted. You are urged to spell-check everything you turn in, and to use complete sentences. You will be graded primarily on the correctness of your answer, but clarity is also important; you will be penalized for answers which are so unclear as to call correctness into question.

Length limit on HW answers: When writing a HW solution, you should give enough details to present the key ideas, but avoid going into an excessive amount of detail or writing an excessively long answer. Most problems can be solved in a perfectly satisfactory way with a one-page writeup (in 11-point font), and you should strive not to exceed one page in your solution to each problem. You are especially discouraged from writing long unclear answers in an attempt for partial credit. If you write more than two pages for any problem, the TAs may not read past page two and may give a score penalty.

Precise deadline: You must turn in your homework set on Gradescope by 11:59pm New York City time on the due date, or it will be considered late.

Important: Please do not include any identifying information (name, UNI, etc.) on your submission. Homework assignments will be graded anonymously by the TAs. Starting with Problem Set 2, points may be deducted if submissions are not anonymized.
