MAT 535 Problem Sets
Algebra II
Spring 2010

There will be 1 problem set for each of the 5 units in the course.
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 drop the missing problem set and compute the
problem set total using the remaining problem sets.
You are encouraged to work with other students in the class, but your
final writeup must be your own and must be based on your own
understanding. Moreover, writeups must be legible, etc. Writeups
which prove too difficult to read may be marked
incorrect 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.
In the assignments below, please work through all problems. Only the
RED problems will be graded.
Please direct any
other questions regarding problem sets to your instructor.
