Guidelines for getting full credit on Homework
Assignments must be neat,
organized and legible.
In plain English: If we cannot read your assignment, you will not get credit for it. Typed assignments are welcome.
At the start of each problem, write out a brief description of the problem including given information and what is to be found.
Show your work enough to fully demonstrate your understating and your arrival at your answer.
Write on only one side of the paper.
Pages must stapled be in order (i.e. following the order in which the problems were assigned).
Unless otherwise stated, plots must be computer-generated (in MATLAB, Excel, etc.)
All plots must have a title and each axis should be labeled. Do not forget units.
Put a box around all final answers.
If coding is used in a problem, you must turn in a paper copy of your computer code along with your assignment. Attach the code immediately after each problem that required code.
Computer code should be clearly commented to demonstrate your intent.
You should go over your homework as soon as it has been graded and returned to you.
Once an assignment has been returned to you, you only have TWO WEEKS from the return date to question the grading. Questions regarding the material are always welcome.
