 HomeworkGeneral Comments
 Most problems are found in one of the following:
 IDAA: Introduction to the Design and Analysis of Algorithms
 AIDMA: An Active Introduction to Discrete Mathematics and Algorithms
 For full credit, provide context for each problem, show all calculations,
and justify all answers by providing enough comments to explain your reasoning.
 You will lose a significant amount of credit if you do not provide context,
calculations, and justifications for a problem.
 Numbers and/or algebra by themselves are not enough.
A correct answer with no justification will be worth no more than half credit,
and sometimes much less than that.
 Precision is very important. You cannot skip steps, make guesses,
or use flawed logic. Any of these things can lead to incorrect answers.
 Homework assignments must be very neatly written or typeset
(e.g. using Word or OpenOffice).
 Remember that you can get up to 50% credit on a problem if you get significant outside assistance. Thus, if you are totally stuck on a problem it might be worth getting help. However, you must indicate any assistance/collaboration (See the Homework Assistance section on the Policies page). Failure to do so could result in a failing grade for the course! Note that getting help from the Help Center or me does not count as significant outside assistance, but talking with your classmates or searching on the Internet does!
 If a problem asks for an algorithm,
you should give the most efficient algorithm you can find to ensure full credit.
You should also specify the complexity of the algorithm with justification,
whether or not the problem asks for it.
