General Comment. Doing and understanding homework problems is critical to your success in this

or any other upper division math course. Homework problems will involve concepts we have discussed in

class but will often challenge you to apply these concepts in new ways; i.e., to develop your problem solving

skills. In order to succeed at this process, it is important for you to be willing to spend time thinking about

problems and to seek help when you need it, which might be often. You should expect to spend a significant

amount of time each week outside of class working on problems with your classmates and discussing problems

with me during office hours.
