For your next reading assignment, you will read a few pages about curves and surfaces from the course notes: Chapter 2, pages 7–23. This material should be enough to get you started on the written/coding exercises NOW, rather than waiting until we are done with the full set of lectures. We will cover these topics in greater depth during lecture (especially the topic of curvature).
Assignment: Read the pages above, and write 2–3 sentences summarizing what you read, plus at least one question about something you didn’t understand, or some thought/idea that occurred to you while reading the article.
Handin instructions can be found in the “Readings” section of the Assignments page. Note that you must send your summary in no later than 10am Eastern on the date of the next lecture (October 24, 2017).
