Math C073: Homework
Fall 2006
The following exercises constitute a minimal assignment.
Each exercise represents a typical type of problem
that you are expected to solve . If a certain type of problem gives you
difficulty, you should get help from
you instructor or at the tutoring center and try more exercises of that type
until you understand the concept.
