Textbook Homework
(Updated 23 May 2014)
These assignments will not be turned in and will be not graded; however, certain exam questions are based on textbook homework problems, so understanding the solutions to these problems should help you perform better on the exams. (Also, if you seek help from the instructor or TAs, they may do these problems instead of the online problems.)
