# Homework

Homework assignments are from OpenStax College Physics

Note that some of you might like to have a paper copy of the book. While you won’t be able to print the entire book at once using your college printing allotment. You should be able to  print each chapter as we start working on it. You are allowed 30 pages per day in each of the printing facilities in the library, G600, and the Voorhees computer lab, adding up to a total of 90 pages per day. I suggest you try it and see if you find the printed copy easier to work with.

The assignments below are subject to change. Please wait for the homework to be posted along with a due date.

The idea of giving you the solutions is that you can check your own work and not get too frustrated if you are confused. However, it is up to you to be a responsible student and not simply copy the solutions without understanding them. If you had to use the solutions to answer the question, you should read over the relevant section of the textbook (and possibly earlier sections of the chapter). You should also come back to the problem at a later time and try to do it again. It should be easy if you really understood it. If you still cannot do it correctly, make sure to ask for help.

You will get credit for the homework assignment even if you simply copy the solutions. (I am also not correcting your solutions.) But if you do this, you will not be prepared for the exams and you will not learn much.
