ENFP 300
Due date: 02/09/2012 (Quiz 1)
HW1
Although the homework will not be graded, it will provide you with enough experience
and practice to apply the knowledge from your lectures to a few real applications. Furthermore,
quiz problems will be based on homework assignments (similar problems, although not
identical).
In this class, we will encourage you to take a systematic approach to problem solving.
This approach will help you tackle each problem step by step and it will be easier to break down
the problem and understand how to solve it. When grading, it will be easier to award partial
credit if this system is followed. We expect you to use this system when you solve your
homework problems, and carry on the approach when you are solving quizzes, midterm and
final exam problems as well.
Problem Solving Approach:
Once you have read a problem and are comfortable enough to start solving it, please follow
these steps:
1)
FIND:
Write down all of the objectives you are trying to solve. Be aware that some
problems are after more than one unknown , so writing out a full list as a first step is
key to keeping track of what you need to find.
