Daily problem sets will be handed out in class and subsequently posted below in pdf format on this web site. The problem sets are due at the start of lectures on the next day. Solutions will not be posted on the web site but paper copies of solutions will be given in class and solutions will be reviewed. Students are encouraged to discuss the problem sets with other students, the grader, and the lecturers, but are required to turn in their own solutions.
