Assignments - MATH 370, Fall 2013

The "list of exercises" refers to the exercises at the end of the class notes

In some of the assignments you'll see instructions saying "Solve questions a, b, c, ..., f" and then "submit questions x, y, ..., z". The meaning of that is that by now I expect you to be able to solve successfully all the questions a, b, c, ..., z. Especially since you are asked NOT to submit them. For those questions, you are welcome to come to my office hours to ask for hints, discuss with your friends, look them up on the web etc. However, in regard to the questions you have to submit: in this case the solution must be yours. You are not allowed to write common solutions, or copy a solution off some website of text book. In case you are stuck, you are welcome to come to my office hours and ask for hints.
