Below are the assigned exercises for the assigned chapters of Freedman, Pisani, and Purves.

Exercises Sets (e.g., Exercise Set A on p. 20) follow each short section of book. You should complete the assigned exercises from each Set immediately after reading that section. We will not usually discuss these exercises in class (unless you have specific questions), but the answers are given in the back of the book. The assigned exercises are simply my suggestions to test your knowledge of the material in the preceeding section. If you find these problems difficult, you should try a few more from that set.

Review Exercises (e.g., Section 6, p. 24) follow most chapters in the book. You should complete the assigned Review Exercises immediately after reading the chapter. Think about these problems carefully, because we will usually discuss these problems in class.
