You will note in the homework compilation linked above, Ol’ Myrt here has stripped out the individual syllabus references, added a uniform header and footer, and page numbers to facilitate our live discussion.

Those submitting homework have been advised “Due to copyright restrictions, participants may *not* post the questions from the book. Merely write about one part of the chapter that “speaks to you” and provide an example from your own research. When quoting Dr. Jones, merely incorporate a sentence or two in your homework, Thank-you.”
