  A lot of people find it helpful to work with others on the homework. Before you do this make sure you know your instructor's guidelines on working with others. Some of the lower level mathematics courses have scheduled times and places for homework study groups with an experienced undergraduate there to help you. Make use of these if they are offered for your course. Aside from being a nice way to make new friends, working with others is an excellent way to learn. If you get stuck on a problem chances are that one of your study mates will know how to do it. So collaboration is encouraged with the understanding that you should write up the problems in your own words for turning in. Copying someone else's solution or the answer in the back of the book may seem like a great shortcut, but the act of thinking through how to write up a solution and actually putting pencil to paper to do it adds a lot to the learning process.

Another useful device when working with others is to take turns explaining concepts and examples to the others in your group. When you explain the ideas and techniques to others you will clarify your own understanding and may discover subtleties or confusion you had not noticed before. Teaching someone else is one of the best ways to learn material yourself.

  Since instructors differ in their policies regarding late homework, you should find out at the start of the course what is expected of you. Make every attempt to get your assignments in on time; instructors or TAs notice when people constantly turn their homework in late. Keep up with homework assignments and don't underestimate the dangers of procrastination!
