How to turn in homework

There is going to be 5 Homeworks, which will account for 40% of the total grade. Homeworks should be turned in at the beginning of the class on the day it is due. All written assignments should be clearly organized and legible; we encourage people to typeset their assignments if they have any question about legibility. Some typesetting tools: Latex , Lyx , Mathematica. All code that was used to complete the assignment should be handed in as a hard copy.
