Assignments

Many homework exercises require written explanations. These explanations should be made with complete sentences that are grammatically correct. Written solutions should make sense separate from the question. Any questions with numerical answers should contain a full written description and justification of the process by which you arrive at the final answer. A numerical answer without support is not acceptable, even if it is correct.
