Homework Assignments

Homework is typically due two class periods after we finish the section. NOTE:  Significant bonus points are available for proving any of the conjectures you make as a result of the computer explorations.  You may not actually always have the tools in the preceding section for the proof though--sometimes later techniques may be needed.  Thus, I will accept proofs of these conjectures at any time in the semester, but they must be written up especially carefully.

I asked Joe Gallian about solutions, and he said he is in the process of preparing them, and he added the following:

"Thanks for your letter. If it is not a bother I ask you to keep track of

the "solutions" you or your students produce and we can compare them to

what I come up with. Although I had a particular conjecture in mind for

each exercise there may be more than one possible."

So proofs would be very cool to send to him!
