In Class Work
Note: Turn in all the problems listed for any given assignment, unless otherwise noted. When I give the grader the problem sets, I will specify two to four problems that she should focus on. Those she will grade in depth; the rest she will grade more broadly. This is to keep the grading timely and under control.
The text , and the problems, are written to encourage you to think and to apply ideas, rather than simply to follow examples. That means that most problems will be different from any examples done in class or in the book. If you don't know where you're going, start writing down what the new (and old) terms mean, rewrite the question a couple of ways, and see if that gives you any ideas.
Your solutions should go beyond anything you might see in a solution manual.
