You can upload your reading responses to the Box folder I will send
you via email. Make sure your last name is in the file name, and put
it in the appropriate folder. Any reasonable format is ok: you can
handwrite and scan as .pdf, or make a .txt file, or a .doc file, or a
.pdf produced from TeX.
The idea of a reading response is to capture your thoughts about the paper. It need only be a few sentences. Here are some questions you can try answer in it.
What struck you most about the paper?
How does this paper fit in with other mathematics you know?
What questions does this paper raise for you?
Is there anything in the paper you would like to learn more
