Assignments

There are two types of assignments given in this course: daily assignments and graded assignments. The daily assignments are not graded, but one problem from each day is usually included in a graded assignment. Not all lectures have assigned daily problems.

Assignments listed in the table below are from the following textbooks and notes:
