This is the web page for Section (with Professor Gryz).
The best way to contact me is to see me during my office hours.
Please use a York account when sending me email, and start your subject line with "". Send messages in plain text, without attachments.
If you want to see me outside these times, you can (1) send me email to arrange an appointment or (2) drop by my office whenever I'm in (but if I'm feeling overwhelmed when you do, I may ask you to come back another time).
Solutions you hand in for homework assignments must be your own work. Although you may discuss the general approach to solving a problem with other people, you should never discuss the solution in detail. You must not take any written notes away from such a discussion, and you should wait at least one hour after the discussion to write down anything about the homework questions. Also, you must list on the cover page of your solutions any people with whom you have discussed the problems. The solutions you hand in should be your own work. While writing them, you may look at the course textbook and your own lecture notes but no other outside sources.
There will be 10 homework assignemnts altogether, one per week. The first two are to be done using Connect (see the bottom of this page for instructions).
If you miss one of the tests for a justified medical reason, the credit for that test will be transfered to the final exam. For example, if you miss one of the tests, your final exam's weight will be 60%.
Reading and Homework Assignments
When a section is assigned as reading, you should do a significant number of the associated exercises as practice. The homework excercises assigned below should be considered a starting point, but you should do more. (And if you have trouble with one particular exercise, do more similar ones.)
The back of the text contains answers for odd-numbered exercises. (In some cases the answers are very brief to save space; you would be expected to show more work.)
Homework assignment 1 & 2
Homework assignments 1 & 2 must be done online. You have to register for a free trial of Connect and submit the homeworks electronically. McGraw-Hill Connect is a learning tool that allows (among other things) automatic homework submission and evaluation. You will find the instructions on where to find Connect here. Make sure you register for appropriate section. When you register for CONNECT, remember to inlcude your first and last name EXACTLY as they appear in York's records. Otherwise, we will not be able to identify your homework and you will receive no credit for it.
Homework assignment 3-10
Starting with Homework 3, you can either keep submitting homeworks online or you can submit them in hardcopy.
Homeworks in hardcopy must be readable and should show the work that led to your answer. All hardcopy homework assignments must be dropped off at the drop off box in the CSE department (ground floor, next to the main office) by of the day they are due. Absolutely no late assignments will be accepted. Homeworks can be picked up in class a week after they are due and any discussion about the grading should be conducted with the TA.
All homeworks are due at 5:30PM.
