MML - Orientation Assignment

Reading Homework

Read course syllabus

Read Section 5.2 - pgs 243-248

For each "Reading homework" I recommend doing all of the examples on paper by-hand and ensuring that you understand why each step is being done. If you don't understand, write a note to yourself in the margin of your paper, and ask me and/or a tutor for clarification. This won't actually be collected for credit, but it will probably raise your overall course grade by at least 10 percentage points.

Read Section 5.3 - pgs 252-256
