Checkpoint & Worksheet Guidelines Page

**Checkpoints**

Checkpoint
exercises should provide a clear indication of your though process. Thus, the
checkpoints should show

·
The necessary calculation or computer
commands to reach your answer

·
Display of graphs that are requested in
the exercise.

Because checkpoints are graded based on effort, you are free
to ask questions that will show that you have considered the issues in the
exercise.

**Worksheets**

On
the top of page one place

·
your name,

·
course name,

·
date,

·
worksheet name, and

·
worksheet number

The
homework should be

·
neat and professional,

·
written on 8.5x11 inch white paper,
lined or engineering paper,

·
either typed, or printed legibly using
either a pencil or blue or black ink,

·
stapled, and

·
in the order the problems are given.

The
problems must be written on your homework directly before your solutions. You
do not need to write the problems out word for word, but it should be clear
enough so that someone can understand what is being solved for without having
to refer to the worksheet.

Your
solutions should clearly indicate your reasoning process. Explain why you are
performing a calculation. Display any visual summaries (e.g., histograms,
boxplots, scatterplots) of the data you make. Display your computer commands
and describe what the commands are meant to accomplish.
