# ASTR 100 (McGaugh)

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS

The homework assignments for the entire semester are given here.
Problems in the boxes refer to problems from the text,
*The Essential
Cosmic Perspective* (5th Edition). It is important that
you use the correct edition of the textbook.
Extra credit problems are included below the box.

All homeworks are due at the *beginning* of lecture on the date specified.

Homeworks are late (and suffer a 20% penalty)
after I remove the homework tray a few minutes into
lecture.

Always put your name and section number at the top of your homework!

Be sure to type or write neatly - we can not give credit for things we can
not read.

It is necessary to demonstrate understanding. For things like
multiple choice questions, explain *why* the answer you chose is
correct.
