Assignments

Post to the Blog

All assignments will be posted on the blog. All work will be submitted on the blog. No paper will be exchanged.

  1. The Assignments page, when it exists, will be a good place to look for links to every assignment and deadline.
  2. Assignment posts are also linked to the sidebar.
  3. Every assignment, major or minor, is identified with a number, beginning with A01.
  4. Exercises are not assignments; they are usually begun in class, often completed in class, and are not numbered. They’re required, but they’re not graded, and they won’t appear on your grade reports.
