FAQ and Piazza
The usage of Piazza comes instead using the emails to the TA responsible for some HW. There always are same questions coming from different students. So in order to ask something or clarify something regarding any HW, you must first check that it wasn't answered previously on Piazza and if not, then ask your question via Piazza. Personal emails may not be answered, repeated questions on Piazza may not be answered.
If there is A CHANGE in requirements, from what was originally stated in the HW - it will be published on FAQ.

Pay attention that FAQ for HW1 were updated. We are not going to send an announcement for each FAQ update, this is your responsibility to check it there.
