MA 167 GUIDELINES FOR WRITTEN HOMEWORK 1. COMMUNICATE Written homework is a form of communication. It is not enough to submit an answer; you must communicate to the reader how you got it. The reader has only your marks on the paper to go by; therefore you must present your ideas clearly. Do not write to your Professor. Pretend that the reader of your homework is another student at about your level who is not attending this course or one who is attending but missed the last few classes. Always read over what you write. Check that it makes sense, says what you meant to say, and actually answers the question(s) asked. 2. USE GOOD ENGLISH The rules of grammar, spelling, and punctuation are not waived in mathematics. Write in short, complete English sentences. A sentence starts with a capital letter and ends with a period. A typical mathematical sentence is: "Let f(x) = x 2 + 4." Avoid pronouns, especially "it", but also "this" and "which". Example:
