- Draw large, clear diagrams.
- Write legibly, and in clear, complete sentences.
- Explain your reasoning briefly but clearly.
- Do the units algebra.
- Analyze the result.
- Start each problem on a new page. Number the pages.
Write your
full name clearly at the top of each page. Write on one side of the
paper
only.
- Do not let equations stretch across the page with a string of
equals
signs. Equals signs should be lined up vertically.
Legibility
is essential!
- If you use a computer typesetting program, you are responsible
for
ensuring that each page is formatted in a clear and legible fashion.
Don't
assume that the program will automatically do it right!

date. Please place your homework on the front desk. Thank
you.
