This section contains the problem sets for the course, which altogether account for 50% of a student's grade. Some of the problems refer to files in MIT's Athena computing environment. These files, which are used to complete the assignments, have been placed in this section under "Supporting Files." Instructors who are interested in obtaining the solutions for these assignments can contact MIT OpenCourseWare with their requests.

Supplemental files marked with an asterisk(*) in the table below contain further information corresponding to the HS data and can be opened in any text editor.
