### MAT 513 Problem Sets Analysis for Teachers I

Spring 2013

There will be 10 weekly problem sets due at the beginning of lecture on Wednesday. The lowest problem set score from the semester will be dropped when computing final course grades. Problems due one week will often practice material covered in previous weeks. It is important to do the problems in a timely manner; do not postpone problems until the last minute.

### UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL LATE HOMEWORK BE ACCEPTED.

In exceptional circumstances, such as a documented medical absence, etc., the instructor will excuse the missing problem set and compute the problem set total using the remaining problem sets. Problem sets missed because of work-related absences will not be excused.

You are encouraged to work with other students in the class, but your final write-up must be your own and must be based on your own understanding. Moreover, write-ups must be legible, must be written in correct, understandable English, and must adhere to the usual standards of rigor for an advanced mathematics course. Write-ups which prove too difficult to read or understand may be marked incorrect and / or may be returned to the student to be rewritten. All questions regarding grading of a problem set should be addressed to the instructor in a timely fashion.

Some of the problems below are just for practice. It is a good idea to know how to solve these problems; similar problems may appear in the weekly quizzes.
