It is important that you are able to explain how to obtain the answers - the solution is the most important part, much more important than the final answer!!! Although these are not going to be collected, you should be sure that they make sense to you and ask me, the Math Intern or a classmate for help if you are having difficulty with any of the concepts. If you are not yet confident with the material, I encourage you to do other odd numbered questions until you are.

**Homework due Friday, February 3:**

- Finish working on the practice problems we were working on in group work. Recall they were Section 2.1: 15 on page 59, and Section 2.2: 9, 22, 27, 28, 36, 37 and 45 on pages 65-68 in the text. AFTER you finish working them through, check your final answers in the back of the text. Note that the text does not provide full solutions, just final answers. It is important that you are able to explain how to obtain the answers - the solution is the most important part, much more important than the final answer!!! Although these are not going to be collected, you should be sure that they make sense to you and ask me, the Math Intern or a classmate for help if you are having difficulty with any of the concepts. If you are not yet confident with the material, I encourage you to do other odd numbered questions until you are.
