Guidelines for Submitting Reading Assignments

**Reading Assignments**

Guidelines for Homework Presentation

**Note:** Of the problems listed below, you are only required to turn in those which are in **bold** print. This is only to keep the grading timely and under control. You are responsible for all of the problems, and I strongly recommend that you use the same standards of excellence in presentation for those you are not turning in as for those you are turning in. This is because (1) rewriting your homework and having it be extremely well organized and well explained helps organize and cement the ideas in your head, and (2) your homework will be a much better study tool if it's well-explained and easy to read. You might, in fact, want to turn it all in, just to keep it together.
