Homework:

The best advice I can give to any math student is to solve problems: doing the assigned homework is the best way to learn the material. Put another way: the homework is the most important part of the course. I would encourage you to work with other students in the class. You will learn the material faster and understand it better by discussing it with your peers.

Every homework is due the class after it is assigned.
