  • Read sections 1.4 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.
  • Wait for the class photo to appear on the class' web site (this should happen sometime in the evening of the day the photo is taken), identify yourself in the photo as explained on the photo page, and either add your details to the photo page as explained there or send me (Dror) an email with those details.
