- Be neat!
- Use 8.5 x 11 loose leaf paper, one side only.
- Use pencil or a computer.
- Working problems on scratch paper first and recopying is a good strategy for catching mistakes as well as for being neat.

- Fold papers together lengthwise to hand them in. Do not staple or tear, etc. The blank side of the paper is to be out. (See illustration below.)
- On the outside at the top, provide the following information as shown in the illustration.

- Name
- Class (Calc III)
- Homework Number
- Date that you turn it in

- Clearly mark the section and number of each problem from the book.
- Include enough information on each problem so that the reader will know, without refering to the book, (a) what the book asked for, and (b) your response.
- Respect the equal sign "=". Use this sign only when you mean that the expression on one side can be substituted into any statement containing the expression on the other side without changing the truth value of the statement.
- Avoid "Type" errors. Use the equal sign "=" to connect two expressions only when they stand for the same type of expression, e.g. two numbers, two functions, or two sets. Use implies "=>" to connect two statements when the truth of the first guarantees the truth of the second. Sometimes, you will need to use an explanatory phrase such as "Therefore", "Now we can see", or "From equations (1) and (2)... in order to express the relationship between two statements.
- Write using complete sentences whenever possible.
