Asking a prof for an assignment!!! Hi, since the end of the semester is approaching,and i am planning on going home for the summer, so no summer classes, i was planning to work something on my own, like in some math topics. However, I was wondering whether it would be a better idea to ask one of my favorite math proffesors to give me some kind of a big assignment in math so i could work on it during the summer. Just so you know, i am not doing this to show of or anything like that, but just to keep myslef busy during the summer. But what i would like to know is would it be too much of a load for a prof. to give her students' assignments like this? I mean, since this is not some kind of research program, would it be too much of a load for her if i asked her to give me such an assignment? Or would that sound right, at first place? Thnx in advance!
