Homework should be turned in at the BEGINNING OF CLASS. All problem numbers refer to the course text by Devaney. Unless otherwise indicated, all parts of a problem (a), (b), etc. should be completed. You should write up solutions neatly to all problems, making sure to SHOW ALL YOUR WORK. A nonempty subset will be graded. You are strongly encouraged to work on these problems with other classmates, although the solutions you turn in should be YOUR OWN WORK.
