HOMEWORK SUMMARY REPORT
Week number: 9
Problem number: 6.1.6
Number of papers received: five
Reviewing committee (Greek letter): iota
List all participating members: trevor tidwell, Ben Schaefer
Author[s] of paper[s] chosen for publication:
[John Lopez]
Comments:
The variation of answers from all five papers suggest that the students
don't quite have a complete grasp on inner products. Some would use the
three properties of positivity, symmetry, and bilinearity, but forget
about the integral not converging or what a well defined inner product is.
INSTRUCTOR'S COMMENT: The paper originally chosen by the reviewers is OK,
but John's is better. I think the reviewers misread one of his sentences and
saw a mistake that was not there.
