 Read sections 2.1 through 2.3 in our textbook. Remember that reading math isn't like reading a novel! If you read a novel and miss a few details most likely you'll still understand the novel. But if you miss a few details in a math text, often you'll miss everything that follows. So reading math takes reading and rereading and rerereading and a lot of thought about what you've read. Also, preread sections 2.4 and 2.5, just to get a feel for the future.
 Solve problems 1, 2, 5, 13, 17 and 18 on pages 7476, problems 1, 5a, 5b, 5cg, 9, 15 and 16 on pages 8486 and problems 1, 2, 3a and 3b on pages 9697, but submit only your solutions of the underlined problems. This assignment is due at the tutorials on Thursday November 9.
 Just for fun. Decide if the vectors and are linearly dependent.
