    Re: Crichton homework

    A good question, Sitifan.

    I haven't been able to throw any light on the matter.

    Nor have I! I'm intrigued. This is a real stretch, but I wondered if it was meant to say "Written homework" and somehow it was a misheard/mistyped word. I can't come up with any sensible suggestions!

    I would assume that Crichton is the author of either "Cambridge Latin course: Book III (4th edition) or Cambridge Latin course: Book IV (4th edition)" or both.

    Books are often named after their author in academia. The lecturer refers to the third book as 'Wheeler'. So 'Crichton homework' is homework from the exercises in Crichton['s book].
