Unformatted text preview: 18.03 Problem Set 3: First Half This is the first two problems of PS3. The rest will be available on February 29. Due by 12:45 P.M., Friday, March 7, 2008, in the boxes at 2-106, next to the Undergraduate Mathematics Office. I encourage collaboration on homework in this course. However, if you do your homework in a group, be sure it works to your advantage rather than against you. Good grades for homework you have not thought through will translate to poor grades on exams. You must turn in your own writeups of all problems, and, if you do collaborate, you must write on the front of your solution sheet the names of the students you worked with. Because the solutions will be available immediately after the problem sets are due, no extensions will be possible . I.
