Homework and Exams

Homework is due during the lecture on the Friday after it is assigned. Remember to staple your homework together on the top left-hand corner and write your name on the front sheet. Neat homework makes happy graders, which leads to a better grade for you. :) I will post the homework at the bottom of this webpage. The first mid-term exam will be on Monday 23rd October and the second will be on Monday 20th November. Both will be taken in class. The final exam is scheduled by the Registrar's Office.

Office Hours and Problem Session

I will hold office hours from 3pm to 4pm on Wednesdays, 1:30pm to 2:30pm on Thursdays and by appointment. I will also answer emailed questions. My office is in the Woodlawn building --- further details are on this link. There will be a problem session at 8pm in Eckhart 308 on Thursdays.
