1. Please try to turn in homework that is neat, easy to read and well-organized. Pay attention to good grammar and proper spelling. Try to prepare your homework to a standard that would be acceptable to your boss or supervisor if it was a document related to your job. If you make mistakes, you should either erase completely or start over on a new page to avoid turning in completed homework with mistakes crossed out (1 point penalty). One suggestion would be to solve for all of your quantitative answers first as a draft, and then prepare your final copy after you have all of your numerical answers.
2. Problem sets are due at the beginning of the class period on the day that they are due, and an assignment may be considered late if it is not turned in at the beginning of the class period. Penalties for late homework may increase during the semester.
3. Show all work to support your final answer to receive full credit. For calculator solutions, you can show the calculator keystrokes that you used to get your answer.
4. Multiple pages should be stapled together (1 point penalty).
5. All numbers should be labeled with appropriate units, e.g. 4%, 4 years, $4m, etc. to avoid penalty of one point for every 4 unlabelled numbers. This penalty applies to exams also.
6. Essays and explanations should be written in full sentences, not in shorthand or using symbols or abbreviations.
7. NO red ink please.
8. Clearly and carefully label all graphs, with appropriate units on each axis, and be sure to make graphs large enough to be easily readable.
9. Homework that is not picked up in class will be held in my office for a period of at least two weeks and then will be subject to disposal. Of course, your score on your homework will be recorded permanently.
10. Please use full-size sheets of standard (8 1/2 x 11 inch) size lined paper without any frayed edges, i.e. please do not use paper torn out of a notebook (1 point penalty), and please do not use legal size paper. Please write inside the margins of the paper.
11. Identical problem sets are not allowed and will be marked down. Working in groups is OK, but each student should turn in their own work.
12. No Folders Please!
