In section 4 of chapter IV of Palka, do the problems 1, 4, 7, 9, 12, 18, 27, 28. Look over the problems for the parenthesized reading as well.
Also, here are four less straightforward problems, which do not necessarily relate directly to this week's reading, but which arose in our discussion. In each case, I will make a statement which is probably not entirely true. Your job is to Prove the statement Or to Disprove the statement. In the case of disproof, you should Also Salvage the statement (i.e. change it as minimally as possible and prove the altered statement) If Possible. Thus these problems are called PODASIPs. Some are easier than others.
Read Chapter IV and section III.5. Sections III.5 and IV.3 are interesting and of some relevance to people who learned some old fashioned notation (III.5) and some more sophisticated integration (IV.3). I would advise that you read all four sections in order, but when it comes time to concentrate, concentrate on the middle two sections first.
In both cases, be prepared--at least--to tell me what you think is the most important thing in your section when you come to speak to me Thursday. I will not give any further suggestions in public, but if either of you feel in need of direction, feel free to talk to me at any time.
Dan will bring the food for break.
