HW5 Grades

The stats for homework 5 are:

Mean: 76
Median: 81
Standard Deviation: 22

Q2 and Q3 were graded by Jiun-Jie and Q1 was graded by Jesse.

The most common mistakes on this homework involved not mathematically proving that the greedy algorithms are optimal.  For these algorithms it is usually intuitive to see that they will be the most efficient, but explaining why they should be optimal is not a proof.  We will go over many more examples of proofs in class and recitation which should clear up any confusion.
