## Problem Set Assignments

Last modified November 23, 1999

Note: Of the problems listed below, you are only required to turn in those which are in bold print. This is to keep the grading timely and under control.

You are responsible for all of the problems, and I strongly recommend that you use the same standards of excellence in presentation for those you are not turning in as for those you are turning in. Rewriting and organizing your homework helps cement the ideas in your mind, and your homework will be an excellent study tool if it's well-explained and easy to read.

Review the guidelines for homework presentation frequently.
