*Homework for 5/8: Modification of problem 13: You need only prove that a 1 and two 0's cannot occur on the same row.
*Ungraded problems are to be carefully completed in detail by each and every student, but will not be graded (or even collected). The answers to these problems can all be found in the back of the book.
*Corrections to Geometry Notes: The geometry notes are currently being revised, with the aim of improving them. If you notice any apparent misprints or errors in the geometry notes, please e-mail the professor immediately. This could be a real help, not only to all your classmates, but also to all those who take the class in future years!
