Introduction

The homework assignments make up 25% of the grade in ES 10. Homeworks are
generally assigned every other Friday, and are due one week after they
are assigned. Late homeworks are accepted, but are penalized 10% per
class meeting that they are late. Late homeworks will
**not**
be accepted more than one week after they are due.

**Table 1:**
Homework Points Breakdown

Your extra credit score (if you did the problem) will be added to the rest of
your homework total from assignments 1-5.
Table 1 shows the
how the homework points were spread out. There was a possible total of 300
points. Any score above 300 points will be dropped down to 300 points as the
final score. You can't go above 300 points even if you aced all the homeworks
*and* did the extra credit.

Extra Credit Problem

Due 28 February

You will find an extra credit problem at the end of
Homework 4 which involves going to see
the movie
Dante's Peak. This problem
is completely optional.
Your movie reviews are due on **28 February**, while the rest of
Homework 4 is due on 21 February.

The problem is worth 50 extra credit points on homework. However, at the end
of the quarter, I will total up each student's homework points, and no student
will get more than 100% of the possible points. So you can get at most 50
extra credit points, but you **cannot** exceed 100% of the total
assigned homework points. It is up to you to decide if you want to do the
problem...
