Formatting homework

Postby Kellylin_4D » Sat Sep 28, 2019 12:17 am

Hey guys! I was just wondering how everyone is formatting their homework. Are you guys copying down the questions on a binder paper then doing it there?

I'm just writing down my answers onto a piece of binder paper. As long as you indicate which question is which, I think that's fine.

I'm using binder paper as well. Does anybody know if we need headers indicating our discussion or lecture at the top?

I would say yes, even if it's just incase to make sure since there's so many students and you want to make sure your points are given to you.

How are you all organizing you work? I'm a first year and unsure of how to maximize my organizational potential for each class.

I am doing mine on binder papers. And after I finished all my works, I plan to choose five problems and rewrite them on a separate sheet to turn in for credit. I also have a tiny folder for this class specifically to keep all my papers.

Are we supposed to write a title at the top of the page such as "week 1 chem 14A homework". I definitely agree that writing your name and lecture/discussion section at the top is helpful. And I assume answers should be boxed as well yes?

Hey Matthew, I think it'd be a good idea that way you can distinguish when/if you refer back to homework to study. Boxed answers might also help the TAs grade a little faster, as they wouldn't have to search for your answers within your work.

For my homework, I am writing the week as well as the problem numbers in the header, with name, date, and lecture/discussion in top right corner. Also, I created a google doc and pasted all of the homework problem #s into it and am highlighting ones I have finished so I know what I have left to do. Boxing answers is always a great idea.

You should always include your id number as well as section. Make sure to include which hw it is and for which class.

For me, I clearly label the hwk problem and just solve the question. My header has my name, ID, and discussion section.

On lined paper, clearly write out what questions you are doing and make sure that you include your name, discussion section number, and ID number in the header.
