For each week’s assignment, find your assigned letter and complete the problems associated with that letter in this document (COPIED ABOVE ALREADY). If your instructor has not assigned you a letter, please use the first letter of your last name. Please post both of the problems assigned to you.
Post responses to at least two other students. You can:
- Ask a question about your classmate’s solution
- Offer help when you see an error
- Seek help in completing your own problems
Remember that non-substantive posts such as “Good job!” will not count toward your participation score.
