OR 441 - Homework Assignments

Fall, 2004

Homework will be assigned at each session. Homework is worth 15% of your final grade. Usually two problems from the set will be chosen by the instructor for grading, each problem counting 5 points. Thus, each homework assignment is worth 10 points. The lowest homework grade will be dropped. For each day that the homework is late, the grade will be reduced by 10%. All work must be clearly written. Illegible work will not be graded.

This page will be updated on a weekly basis. I will try to update this page on Friday morning. 

Note: Homework assignments might be changed as the semester progresses. I have provided my anticipated schedule for those that want to get a little ahead in the course.
