Homework Week 1

Postby Johnathan Smith 1D » Thu Oct 03, 2019 11:26 am

Can someone clarify exactly what we are supposed to do for Homework? Are we doing five problems overall or five from each section?

Five questions in total, pick and choose among the assigned ones. Due in lecture tomorrow.

and just another sidenote, my TA said that we only turn in 5 questions, so don't turn in all your hw if you end up doing more

It's ultimately up to you to chose which 5 you want to complete, however, diversifying your homework questions and choosing one from each section is a good way to practice the different Fundamentals.

Does anybody know how the homework is graded? Does he pick one at random and grade that? Or is it just credit/no credit?

To satisfy the requirements, you only need to answer ANY 5 questions from the problem list and turn them in during tomorrow's lecture. HOWEVER, if you have the time and/or want extra practice, I would strongly suggest that you do more than the required 5 problems. Professor Lavelle states that he includes some homework questions on tests and the continued practice should be helpful in solidifying the concepts and problem solving strategies. Regardless, you should obviously strive to do different problems (like one from each section or so) to work on the different topics.

Any five questions can be answered for 5 pts per week for the homework. More can be done for practice, but only 5 need to be turned in.

I understand it is 5 problems each week but how is it graded? Is it completely by accuracy?

For the homework, you only need to turn in five problems overall, the list of questions in the different sections is just the array of questions to choose from.

I don't think they're graded by accuracy, at least that's what my TA said

There are 5 homework problems due which you can attain from the course website. As for how they are going to be graded, I think it will be useful for the graders to understand the step by step process you went through for the answer. Also, if it helps, complete problems from most sections to better understand the fundamentals.

Am I supposed to choose the 5 problems so that I do one from each topic?

Yeah, you could just choose a random 5 from the problems assigned if you wanted

I believe Dr. Lavelle said he grades homework based on effort and completion. However, if he did grade it on correctness, the solution manuals are available for us to check our work.

Should we write out the whole question that we are answering?

I don't think you have to write out the problem before you answer it

I think the homework was more straightforward this week than other weeks, but didn't Lavelle say that the homework is split up in topics? How would we know what problems to do for next week? On the syllabus it isn't split up by week so I am just a little confused...
