Answers to almost all odd numbered exercises.
Course Outline: We will
cover most of chapters 5-8, and some parts of 11.
Calculators: Calculators are not necessary for this course and will not be allowed on tests. Neither will cell phones nor iPods. If you want a clock/watch during exams, bring one, but you will NOT be allowed your cell phone. (Use of cell phone or calculator during exam is grounds for a 0.)
Tests: Calculators will not
be allowed on the tests (nor cell
phones). Bring your student ID cards to all exams.
As always, you are responsible for
Code of Conduct on exams.
Quizzes: There will be regular
quizzes in section. Roughly 3-5 this quarter. They will usually
consist of one or two problems VERY similar to assigned homework
problems, where you must show all your work.
1st quiz: Jan 24, in section
2nd quiz: Feb 28, in section
3rd quiz: Mar ?, CANCELED
assigned to give you practice with the material covered in the
lectures. Most homework will be assigned on Webwork. You are REQUIRED to use a computer to do this homework. Occassional homework may
consist of written assignments, in addition to WebWork. (For instance,
we plan a written HW on "algebra" (e.g. what is 1/a + 1/b), and on
delta-epsilon proofs.) Your
HW grade will be a combination of these two. In the world of budget constraints and public
universities, we cannot collect, hand grade, and return problems each week.
assigned homework problems are the minimum necessary to understand
the material in the course. Do the problems carefully.
You will have to do your work on paper, but then input the answer online.
The computer only tells you if your final answer is right or wrong.
I will assign homework more often than once per week! Working on exercises should be something you do every few days, not racing through the night before the due date.
I strongly recommend that you do homework every day, not just
before it is due.
NO LATE HOMEWORK WILL BE ACCEPTED!.
Homework assignments are available on-line, and will be posted on the Homework page and/or at WeBWorK. Homework solutions are here when we feel you need to see all steps of a worked problem.
Webwork will work on any computer that (a) runs a browser. This means that you can work with Webwork from your home desktop or a laptop. In addition, the following campus labs have computers.
