EVENING CLASSES: Weekly evening classes must be treated as regularly scheduled classes. Evening classes will be taught by TAs. You must attend only the class for which you are registered – no exceptions. To change the class you must go through a regular registration process. TEACHING ASSISTANTS: TBA HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned each week via Blackboard. Homework will consist of 8-10 problems from the book and possibly additional practice problems. Only specially designated problems will be graded. Neither solutions nor the answers to the practice problems will be provided. Graded problems will be returned one week later. Each solution presentation should be treated as a report. Accordingly, this is your  responsibility to present your solutions in an intelligent and clear manner. This  includes good handwriting from top left to bottom right in a single column. Poor  presentations will be penalized.
