Submission of homework assignments must be uploaded in a single PDF file. Multiple files will not be opened. Each problem must be clearly numbered and the problems must be in numeric order. Your work must be formatted in such a way that all of one problem is presented before the next problem begins. (It often happens that when a student saves an Excel file as a PDF, there are multiple pages and problems between the first half of a problem and the second half. Work down the Excel page, not across. Also, if you have done your work in Excel using a new worksheet per problem, saving your work in a PDF will often save only the first page. Check your formatting before you submit.) Furthermore, all workshop assignments must be submitted together and not in a piecemeal fashion. For example, you may not submit problems 1 and 2 on Monday, then 3 and 4 on Tuesday, and finally problem 5 on Wednesday. You must submit all five problems in one submission by the Sunday deadline.
