Homework & Quizzes

Homework will not be collected, but the problems on the weekly quizzes will either be chosen from among the homework problems or structured similarly.
Thus completing the homework on schedule is in the students' best interests. While working on the homework with classmates is both allowed and encouraged,
you need to be able to work out the material yourself, as homework is your best source of preparation for the quizzes and exams.

A short quiz will be given in your Tuesday discussion section every week that there is no exam. The two lowest quiz grades will be dropped.

Homework Problems

Solution Sets


There will be three 50 minute midterm exams held during discussion section. Midterms are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, October 1st,
Tuesday, October 29th, and Tuesday, November 26th. If you have a conflict with any of these dates, please contact your instructor immediately.
Each midterm will cover material up to the week of the exam. Use of calculators, phones, or any other electronic devices will not be allowed during quizzes or exams.

Lecture Notes

Slides from lecture will be made available later in the day after each lecture for which they exist.
On days when we review the midterms there may be no slides.

Important: Slides do not include examples (which are done on the blackboard), nor do they include the detailed explanations
of topics which are given during lecture. They are closer to an outline and general guide. They do not replace attending lecture,
but merely aid in reviewing the material later.
