I have a suggestion.  Ask your instructor if this makes sense.
As a (former)j instructor at both MIT (math) and UC Berkeley,
(computer science) my advice is:
don't waste your time on this. It will not improve your understanding
or your grade. On the contrary, it will distract you,
and possibly thwart your efforts to show your answers.
