TURNING IN HOMEWORK/LABS: NOTE: Failure to follow these directions by putting things into the incorrect box will result in a score of '0' on your homework/lab.
TURN BOOK PROBLEMS into the RECITATION box corresponding to your RECITATION instructor's name and meeting time. (Studio math 100 cubbies are located closest to the glass doors in Cardwell Hall, across from the Mathematics Department office.)
TURN LABS into the LAB cubby corresponding to your LAB instructor's name/meeting time. This cubby is right beside the book homework cubby. You can always put assignments into the cubbies ahead of the due date. Late homework/labs will not be graded.
