Homework for Math 122: Math in Art
Just a heads up! I chose the mathematical topics for this class based on their connection to art. They do not all build upon each other as happens in a more traditional math class, nor are they of the same complexity. Also, I like to see what people can do when given the chance. For these reasons, the problems on the homework vary quite a bit in their level of difficulty. Some weeks, the entire problem set may be fairly straightforward (which is not quite the same thing as being easy); other weeks may be a bit more mixed. Furthermore, some weeks the problem sets will be fairly long, while other weeks they'll be shorter.
When you encounter a problem or an entire concept that seems difficult to you, don't freak out and don't skip it. Take advantage of my office hours and peer tutoring.
Follow the Guidelines for Homework Presentation
Points will be deducted from problem sets that do not.
- Problem sets will generally be due on Wednesdays; PS0 will be due on a Monday partly because it is not actually a problem set, and partly because it's purpose is to help me to get to know you, so the sooner I have it the better.
- Problem sets will generally alternate between individual problem sets, which each person will write up on their own, and group problem sets, for which you will work in groups of 2 or 3 people (not 1 and not 4 or more), and then your group will turn in a joint problem set.
- For the group problem sets, do not divide the problems up between you. Every member of the group should think about and understand every problem.
- For the group problem sets, only one person should do the actual writing of the final copy that will be turned in. Put a star next to the name of that person (the primary author).
- I strongly urge you to switch who you work with on the group assignments from one group problem set to the next.
- You should be primary author roughly every other group problem set.
- See course policies for my policies for late problem sets, and also for more information about how the Honor Code applies to problem sets.
