How to Discuss Exercises

Frederik Eisele has done something great: he's started lots of discussions where you can do the exercises in Chapter 1! Not all of them, but lots. Andrew Ardill then created blanks where you can add more.

If you want to see the answer to an exercise, or start a discussion of an exercise, please check the Azimuth Wiki first! Go to this wiki page:

We've already got some duplicate discussions of exercises - use this page to avoid creating more. And if you create a brand new one, please note it on this wiki page, so we can find it! Just go down to the bottom of the bottom of the page and click "Edit". You can probably figure out what to do next. But if you have questions, please let me know here!

Here are the exercises for Chapter 1:

    I have added the remaining discussions for chapter 1.

    I have started adding discussions for chapter 2. I did not include them in the main wiki page as that page is getting a bit unwieldy to edit.

    Also I put in a link to a page the links to the discussions on the puzzles. I did not see a need to add new discussions for the puzzles as the place where the puzzles are created seems like a reasonable discussion already.

    You may notice that I have taken slight liberties with the exercise descriptions, including referenced objects so that you should not need to look them up in the book.

    Frederick: thanks! As the main wiki page continues to expand we can start moving stuff out of there and putting it on other wiki pages, with links. For example we may someday have a wiki page "Chapter 1" or "Sketch 1" containing links to all discussions relevant to that. Luckily it's easy to do this in a step-by-step way as the need arises, while keeping some eye to consistency.

    I'm saying "Chapter", e.g. in my lecture titles, while you're saying "Sketch". We may someday need to fight a duel to the death over that. Your convention is more cute but I'd need to rename a bunch of things to adhere to it.

    I started calling them "Sketch" as that was what DSpivak called them. I have been changing them all to "Chapter" as I revisit things.

    The Exercises mention Definitions and Equations often. Should we have a wiki page for them to be listed? That way the Exercises can provide a link to them much as in the textbook.

    Fredrick - that seems like a lot of work, so it's really a question of whether you want to do it... not just today, but for the whole book. (Maybe someone else will help out, but I find it's best if I don't start projects that require someone else to help out.)

    John, I have been putting the Definitions in the first Exercise description where it is mentioned. In subsequent Exercises I have been placing links.
