Success is not a function of cleverness alone. • Postmark or submit your solutions by e-mail (preferred) by Friday, May 20, 2011. • Make sure that the cover sheet is the first page of your submission, and that it is completely filled out.

They should be sent as an attachment in either .doc or .pdf format. If you write and scan your solutions, insert the scans into a .doc or .pdf file and...
