12-240/Homework Assignment 3
This assignment is due at the tutorials on Thursday October 11. Here and everywhere, neatness counts!! You may be brilliant and you may mean just the right things, but if the teaching assistants will be having hard time deciphering your work they will give up and assume it is wrong.
Task 0. Add your name to the Class Photo page!
Task 1. Read sections 1.4-1.6 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.
- Solve problems 1-5 on pages 32-34, but submit only the last part of each problem.
- Solve problems 6-10 on page 34, but submit only your solution of problem 10.
