6.055J/2.038J (Spring 2008) Homework 4 Do the following warmups and problems. Due in class on Friday, 04 Apr 2008 . Open universe: Collaboration, notes, and other sources of information are encouraged. However, avoid looking up answers until you solve the problem (or have tried hard). That policy helps you learn the most from the problems. Bring a photocopy to class on the due date , trade it for a solution set, and figure out or ask me about any confusing points. Your work will be graded lightly: P (made a reasonable effort), D (did not make a reasonable effort), or F (did not turn in). Warmups 1.
