Homework consists of the problems from the list below and counts for 50% of the final grade. The problems marked by W should be submitted and will be graded. Other
problems are considered as suggested exercises which help both to solve W-problems
and to perform well on the tests. The W-problems must be submitted in a properly
written form. In particular, the text solutions should be written in clear and grammatically correct language. Poorly written assignments will be returned back (with remarks); these remarks must be addressed
and the homework must be resubmitted until it is considered as "accepted". The
grade for the homework comes out of the number of "accepted" assignments. In order to simplify these iterations it is highly recommended to have your homework printed, not hand-written. Note that no partial credit will be given for a particular assignment.

Read section 3.2 and explain, in writing, what is the difference between taxicab and
usual geometry? Pay particular attention at how the notion of "distance" showed up in the previous axiomatic development of geometry, and how does it work in section 3.3 in the connection with SAS postulate.
