Exams and Grading
Assignments and Reading materials
- All assignments need to be submitted before Sunday midnight.
- Students are strongly encouraged to typeset their solution via LaTeX/TeX. Typesetting using LaTeX/TeX will obtain 25% bonus on the score they get for the assignment.
- Students need to submit their assignments through the dropbox link provided.
- The name of the zipped file (this should contain the LaTeX/TeX source file, pdf, and code) for submitting your assignment should be as follows: ma14c093_5.zip (or .rar or .tar), where ma14c093 is your roll number and 5 implies that you are submitting your fifth assignment.
- Any copying on assignments will result in a zero on the assignment.
- We will be using JPlag to detect similarities among multiple sets of source code files.
- The grader will expect you to express your ideas clearly, legibly, and completely, often requiring complete English sentences rather than merely just a long string of equations or unconnected mathematical expressions. This means you could lose points for poorly written proofs or answers. Clear exposition is a crucial ingredient of technical communication. Clarity of thought and presentation is more important in mathematics & sciences than any other field. The only way to master exposition is by repeated practicing.
