The Work

James Scholar Supplemental Homework Assignments

Each assignment is due by 5 p.m. on the specified due date. Late assignments will receive zero credit.

You will turn your James Scholar assignments in on GradeScope, access code: 74G7B6

Assignments which do not conform to instructions below will also receive zero credit.

Each page of your submission must contain:

your name
discussion section
the assignment number

The problems are harder than the others in 212; however, we want you to give them your best!

Each problem (three problems per assignment) will be graded out of 10 points. You must maintain an average of about 8/10 in order to receive credit.

There will be 5 assignments, due every 2 or 3 weeks, and timed to avoid scheduling conflicts with hour exams.

Be sure to show a reasonable amount of your work. More is always better than less. If we ask for a numerical answer don't forget the units.

The solution might also involve submission of a graph. You may make the graphs with any software you want or submit the graph as hand-drawn. Don't forget to label the axes of the graphs with the variables plotted, and include units.

Please note that the grades on these assignments DO NOT affect your overall 212 grade IN ANY WAY.
