The grading of each problem assignment will include up to 3 style points. To earn style points, first your work must be organized clearly and typed properly according to commonly accepted mathematical format (e.g., in complete sentences). Here are some suggested guidelines for homework format from Harvey Mudd College. (You can ignore the section "Using LaTeX to Format Your Homework".) Second, if I have to reread a solution several times to find a train of thought, or if a solution is illegible, ambiguous, or incoherent, your style points will be reduced. Thus, you should give some thought to how you present your work.
All PowerPoint presentations used in class will be available on ANGEL, often before class. (Look under "Lessons".) The presentation posted might not be exactly the one used in class, as the need to preserve surprises or include last-minute changes sometimes arises. Additional caveat: The PowerPoint presentation can never capture EVERYTHING that goes on in class or accurately replicate the classroom experience.
