Reading Questions [PDF]

After reading each chapter, send me an email with your answers to each of the five questions. Each answer will be graded as one point, there will be no partial credit. For computational problems, just send an answer, you do not need to justify your work. I will reply with a list of the questions you got credit for. Observe the following to ensure your answers are received properly and graded.

- Make your subject line exactly,
exactly as follows: Chapter X, where X is the number of the chapter.
**Do not**send your answers to my`beezer(at)ups(dot)edu`address, but**do**send them to the address announced in class. - Put your full name as the first line of the body of your message.
- Answer the questions in order, beginning each with the problem number.
- Endeavor to send your answers as
**straight**ASCII text, no HTML if you can help it. Definitely**do not**send your responses as an attachment. TeX syntax is fine for simple expressions. - Answers are due at 6 AM on the morning of the day we begin discussing each new chapter. They will not be accepted late under any circumstances.
- You can expect a reply the next morning, or within 24 hours at the latest.
