Homework Assignments  The homework assignements will not be marked, but will be discussed during tutorials. The importance of doing homework cannot be overemphasised. You will not learn the material without working on problems. On the other hand, if you can do the homework problems you will be able to do the exams. The problems given have brief solutions in the text, so you can check if you are doing them correctly. You can also ask your TA or instructor about specific problems, or to look over your work.
