Detailed list of material that will be covered can be found bellow. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
The final counts 300 points towards the final grade.
We will be using WebWork for the homework. Each set of homework contains problems from two sections. Homework will be made available as soon as we have finished first of those sections and then stay open for one week and then the solutions will be made available. The only exception is if the first section is covered on Thursday and the second section of Monday. Then the problem set will be open until the following Monday. There is no extension possible for the homework!
There are 15 homework sets. Each counts 16 points towards the final grade. Only the 12 best will be counted towards the final grade.
To login to WebWork do the following:
- Classes begin June 6 and end July 25. The final exam is on July 28, 1:30-3:30 in Lockett 276.
- There will be three tests in class:
- Monday, June 20, 11 AM - Noon.
- Wednesday, July 6, 11 AM - Noon.
- Wednesday, July 20, 11 AM - Noon.
Each test counts 150 points towards the final grade.
New students are not loaded into the WebWork system, I have to do that manually. So please contact me (per email) if you are new in the class. Also, check online as soon as possible if you are able to access WebWork. Let me know if you have problems.
We will assign homework from the book after each section. Those exercises will not be graded and do not count towards the final grade. But they are important to get used to the material and prepare for the tests and the final. Each test and the final will include some of those exercises. We will discuss the solution of some of those exercises in class.
