In addition to the short (6 problems) assignment due friday, there is a set of 40 practice problems online, listed as Extra Credit Review. Each problem is worth one point, and must be completed before the final on the morning of 12/14 to give extra credit. I suggest starting them much sooner. Obviously, there will be no extensions granted.
