Reading Questions [PDF]

After reading each chapter, send me an email with your answers to each of the five questions. Each answer will be graded as one point, there will be no partial credit. For computational problems, just send an answer, you do not need to justify your work. I will reply with a list of the questions you got credit for. Observe the following to ensure your answers are received properly and graded.

- Make your subject line exactly, exactly as follows: Chapter X, where X is the chapter covered. Do not send your answers to my beezer(at)ups(dot)edu address, but do send them to the address announced in class.
- Put your full name as the first line of the body of your message.
- Answer the questions in order, beginning each with the problem number.
- Answers are due at midnight in the evening on the day before we begin discussing each new chapter. They will not be accepted late.

Sage Exercises [PDF]

These are due via email prior to the Problem Session for each chapter.
