• go to the homework solution sessions

• set up a time to meet with your mentor TA

Homework Integrity:

• You cannot share written material with anyone.

• You cannot discuss the problems with anyone who is not taking the course and who is not a course staff member.

• You cannot solicit answers to the homework problems, i.e., you cannot ask anyone to provide you the solution to a problem, before the homework is due.

• Searching the internet for general concepts is allowed. Googling for specific keywords that happen to appear in one of the homework problems is not allowed.

• You must always cite your sources including the people you have worked with.

• If you work on a publicly visible whiteboard/blackboard, you must erase all contents when you are done.

Recitation:

• Bell pepper Not spicy. We will go over the definitions to make sure everyone understands them fully. Then we will solve the problems together (as many as the time allows).

• Jalapeño pepper Normal spicy. After a quick review of definitions, we’ll solve the problems together. These sections will have a faster pace.

• Habanero pepper Hot! We’ll assume you are comfortable with everything covered in lecture and notes, so we’ll directly dive into the problems. These sections will have the fastest pace.

Tips on Proof:

• check corner case: nil, 0, negative, emptyset, interaction of variables

• cite properly

• don't take infinity out of natural number
