All writing assignments should be 2-3 pages long (“front-back-front” is 3, not three full sheets!) They must be labeled and handwritten. You do not need to re-write the question. Assignments that fail to meet the minimum length requirement will not be graded. Any assignment copied from any source instead of being done on your own will result is administrative intervention for plagiarism.
