What work to do

The book contains numerous exercises, complete with worked solutions. A subset of these exercises will be designated as the exercises you should work on each week. [Generally, these exercises are the ones marked `highly recommended' by a marginal rat.] I encourage you not to look at the worked solutions for these exercises before you have attempted them yourself.

In the supervisions, we will focus in detail on just a few of the exercises. (You should work on all the exercises yourselves before supervisions.)

So far

The first week's recommended exercises: 1.3 (p.8), 1.5-7 (p.13), 1.9, & 1.11 (p.14).
