MATH 308 - Suggested Homework Problems

All students should read the text, the lab manual, and study the online Chapter Notes before attempting the problems. Lab Manual and basic problems should be done by everyone. Advanced problems (marked with an asterisk '*') are optional and are for those students seeking A and B grades.

Note to Instructors: It will not be possible for the graders to grade all suggested problems, so you will need to select the ones you wish to be graded by the grader.
