Assignment 2

This is assignment is due in class

on Wednesday, September 10.

Some time will be available in class on Friday, September 7, for
students to work in groups on this assignment. Depending on how things
go, there might be some additional time for group work on Monday.
However, each person should write up his or her own solutions to turn in
on Wednesday. Remember that to get credit for a problem, you must
explain your reasoning. That is, explain how you thought about the
problem, including deductions that you made or steps that you took and
why they are valid. Even if you do not arrive at a correct answer, or
at any answer at all, you can still get some credit for your discussion.
On the other hand, you will get little or no credit for simply stating
an answer, even if the answer is correct.

The assignment consists of the following exercises from the textbook
*Symmetry, Shape, and Space*:

- On page 5, Section 1.1, Exercise 10, Parts f and g.
- On page 8, Section 1.1, Exercise 14, Parts i, j, k, and l. For part k, give
two different ways of solving the problem.
- On page 18, Section 1.2, Exercises 8, 9, 10, and 12. Note that some of these
exercises have answers in the back of the book.

Since you have already done some work on area and perimeter problems in
class, you should begin your work in class on Friday by trying the exercises
from Section 1.2.
