Remember to mark your solutions with the number of your section and the name of the section teacher. Also below are few extra excercises that you can use to practice on and make sure that you have understood the material. Some of them will be solved in the sections if there is time. Note that solutions to all odd-numbered exercises are at the back of the textbook.

For those who want to try something new, it might be interesting to take a look at Prolog. Prolog is a logic programming language and it is discussed on page 39 of the textbook. You can get a free Prolog compiler and Windows environment for it. Then you can try your hand at solving exercises 51-54 on page 43 of the textbook.
