    Course Outline

    Practice problems

    This section contains a list of problems from the textbook. These are not to be turned in, but working through them will help crystallize the concepts covered in class. Not all parts of a textbook section will be emphasized equally in lectures, and these problems serve as guidelines for identifying the important and relevant parts that constitute the course syllabus. Exam questions will be largely modelled on these problems.
