Write a plain text e-mail to me. (Do not attach a wordprocessor file such as Microsoft Word.) Give it the subject "FH11011 Homework #3 by <your name>" and send it to eses-hw@turnbull.sk.tsukuba.ac.jp.

The subject must contain the course number FH11011 in hankaku romaji. (If you are registered for FH61011, use FH11011 anyway. This is for sorting incoming mail, and not related to university administration.)

You will automatically receive an acknowledgment email. (If you don't, tell me.) Keep your email and the acknowledgment as proof of completion of the assignment.
