CPSC 3300 - Spring 2014
Homework 1
Due Friday, January 31 [extended]
Each student must turn in a separate set of homework solutions,
but you may work together in study groups with other students
from the class. Include the names of your study group members
on the solution set you submit.
I suggest that in the interest of better participation you limit
your study group sizes to four.
Also, please provide sufficient space for your calculations and
answers so that grading will be easier.
