The written portion of assignment 1 is now available (below), which covers some of the fundamental tools we’ll be using in our class. Initially this assignment may look a bit intimidating, but keep a few things in mind:
- The homework is not as long as it might seem: all the text in the big gray blocks contains supplementary, formal definitions that you do not need to know in order to complete the assignments.
- Moreover, note that you are required to complete only three problems from each section.
Finally, don’t be shy about asking us questions here in the comments, via email, or during office hours. We want to help you succeed on this assignment, so that you can enjoy all the adventures yet to come…
This assignment is due on Thursday, February 25.
