Unformatted text preview: MA 460/561 9/21/2011 Howell Bonus Points 1 On Friday, September 30, at the start of class (or earlier), turn in a list of as many “certifiable” errors or typos as you can find in the text1, excluding, of course, those already listed in the on-line Errata sheet (Typos in Text, dated October 25, 2010).

Disagreements with my “style” (the placement of footnotes, my not indenting the paragraph following a header, the choice of symbols identifying exercises and examples, etc.) don't count.

And I will appreciate any other comments or suggestions you may have concerning this book, including your opinions on the readability, material covered, chapter and equation numbering, esthetic appeal of the fonts, and so on. 1 A “certified error” is anything I agree is a certifiable error. ...
