*Assignment #1 (10 points):*

- Go to saveliev.net, then go to the class page.
- Read the Course Policy.
- Try to set up a group (3-4 members) by Friday, then e-mail the list to me. For this purpose you can use the list of students. If you don't have a group you'll be assigned to a group at random.
