There will be 4 homework sets assigned throughout the semester
composed of two sections of questions. The first section will be
questions generated by the CAPA software package and accessed through
the Department's CAPA web site (see below for details on accessing this
site). You will be given further information about CAPA during the
first week of class. These CAPA questions will be graded and
count as 10% of the course grade. The second section of problems will
not be graded and will have solutions posted on the course web page.
Try to do these problems by yourself before retrieving the solutions from the
web page. Doing both sections of questions will be a big help in studying for
