Here are some resources to help you with your assignments. Note that the cover page or equivalent is required starting with homework 1, and you are responsible for the contents of the style guide.

Problem Sessions

Problem Sessions will be held weekly on Sundays between 3 and 5 pm, in Motorola (CIT165). They are an excellent way for you to get extra practice with the material. Problem Session problems will be posted a day or two after the homework is released, and solutions will be posted Sunday nights.

Challenge Problems

Occasionally, we will write a problem that is too challenging or involved for a regular homework, but is still extremely interesting and relevant to the course. We have decided to release them as challenge problems, which you may do (or not do) at your leisure. If you feel particularly confident in your understanding, you may turn in your answers to a challenge problem at any time. They will be picked up along with the current homework assignment at 2 pm the following Thursday.

Handins which we deem to be exemplary will earn an additional free late pass on any following homework. Challenge problems otherwise do not affect your grade whatsoever, including not turning one in.
