(Week 4 will be the last special assignment until after the midterm; there will be no special assignment for Week 5 or Week 6.) Week 7. Week 8. This will be the last special assignment, to allow time for any necessary rewrites. Here is a sample solution to that last assignment.

However, here is a comment on the special assignment for Week 7. Even if you do not have to redo that assignment, you might want to read this, because it gives a geometric example of what V and V/W might look like.
