11/6: The homework assignment for next Monday got mangled.
It is now corrected.
11/5: I graded the optional homework on logarithms, allotting 8 points to the
data experiment and 8 points to the two formulas (since most people who did one of those
did both, as suggested). See my "Lecture 11/12" of 2003
for some comments that bear repeating here. I'll make a "Logarithms" folder where you can
put your papers for public consumption.

9/3: Instructions for the book
