MATH 281A COURSE INFORMATION
GRADING: The grade will be determined based on the
homework and the take-home final.
(1) Homeworks will be assigned/collected roughly bi-weekly, for each
homework the due date will be specified.
(2) Important: It is crucial that you learn to write
the arguments briefly but correctly and completely, and that you
will carefully chose what to write. For this reason I will always
stipulate the maximum length of the text you may use. If you are
typing, the size of the font must not be less than 10pt. I
will not read any text that exceeds the specified maximum
