170 – Homework 1

Homework 1 is due Friday, February 15 at the beginning of lecture. Select and solve 2 exercises from each of chapters 1-4 in Spivak’s book. Make sure that you find at least one of the exercises in each chapter somewhat challenging (let me know which ones). Please write the statements of the questions. Also, try to write your answers so they can be understood when read by someone else, not just by you, meaning in particular that I want to see sentences, not just symbols, and I want to see your final work, rather than your scratch work.

Aside: I posted on my webpage some examples of graphs produced with SAGE (the 3d graph is here). It may be a good idea to practice with some graphing software and a few unfamiliar graphs, specially from now on, as we start exploring unfamiliar concepts.
