• First do the homework and copy just the short answers onto another paper and turn it in on Mondays.
• I will post solutions after class on Monday. The solutions will be in the 2nd floor study EE area and on reserve at the library.
• Look at the solutions and grade it as right or wrong - no partial credit. Next study the solutions and rework incorrect problems using the solutions. If it doesn't make sense ask for help. Get a grade sheet off the web or draw one on your paper and record your grades and total them.
• Scoring - Each problem is worth 10 points.  To make things easy and uniform give your self credit only for correct answers.  If there is only one answer the score could be 0 or 10.  If there are 4 answers the score could be 0, 3, 5, 8, 10 (round fractions in your favor).
• Wednesday, hand in the grade sheet, your graded homework (the original set) and the reworked solutions.
• I will record the two grades from the grade sheet for each home work set.
• The first grade is for answers handed in on Mondays - NO late credit.
• The second grade is for the reworked solutions - This one should be perfect. Late solutions are reduced 10% per period.
• Both grades will be averaged for the final homework grade (along with the pop quizzes and reading summaries).

Here is a sample grade sheet.  There should be one on the web for each homework set, if not make one like this.
Home work set # 101
 Prob. first score 0-10 check here if you did not redo the problem second score 0-10 1 - - - 2 - - - 3 - - - 4 - - - 5 - - - 6 - - - 7 - - - 8 - - - 9 - - - Total - - -

If you did the problem correctly the first time and got 10 points, check 'did not redo' and put 10 in for the second score.

If you elect not to redo a problem check 'did not redo' and put the same score in for the second score.

If you didn't work the problems and just copied the solutions put zero everywhere.

FAQ:  Why do i need to rework homework for this class, I don't have to for my other classes?

Answer:  On a job in the real world when you are given a problem, you are expected to work on it until it is solved, not just one good try.  It will help you learn the material better.

FAQ:  What should I do if I find an error in the your solution?

Answer:  This really happens.  Send me e-mail explaining the error.  The first one to notify me will receive 20 extra points.  I will let everyone know by e-mail.  If there really wasn't an error there is no penalty.
