Dear Instructor or Tutor,
These problems are designed to let my students show me what they have learned and what
they are capable of doing on their own. Please allow them to work the problems on their
own! If you would like to help them with similar problems, here are the related homework
problems: pg. 408: 7-41 odd, 49-57 odd, 61-65 odd, 79. Thanks!
Dear Student,
Don’t even think about asking for help on the problems in this activity! The recommended
homework problems have answers in the book, so do them first for practice!!!
