Homeworks will be assigned approximately once every 2-3 week. You are encouraged to discuss and even collaborate on the assignments, but you are to understand the answers fully and write up the homework individually in your own words. If things look suspicious, I would be tempted to ask you to explain your answers on a blackboard to me.
I will post the solutions on the web.
