Tentative Schedule and Assignments

In this section, I present a tentative schedule of section numbers covered in class with corresponding homework assignments for the whole course. It remains to be seen how faithful to this we will be.

We do not explicitly cover the review material in Chapter 1. Sections of Chapter 1 relevant to sections we cover may be shown in parentheses.

August:

25
2.1, 2.2 (1.10,1.8) p. 137 4,8,11,12,23,26,36-38,40,43,44; p. 148 2,5,6,11,12,13-16,20,25,26

26
more 2.2 (1.8) p. 148 47,48,57,58,60,61,64,65,71,72

27
2.3, problem solving (distance formula, similar triangles, d = rt)
p. 158 2,4,12,13,14,16,19,20,22,23,26

September:

2
2.5 p. 184 9-12,13,14,17,18,20,21,23,30,31-34

with extended due date (word problems): p. 184 35,37,38,40,42-44,58

3
Add deadline. 5.1, 5.2 p. 358 2,5,6,8,10,17,18,22,23,27-28(hint: use geometry),29,33-38,43-44; p. 366 4-14,21-24,26-32 even,35-36,52,56,57,58,60-66 even,75(look at it)

8
6.1, 6.2 p. 412 2,10,19,22,32-34,38,44,46,48,52,56,58; p. 422 3,4,5,6,11,12,15,16,18,26,28,30

6.2, 6.3 p. 422 33,34,38,42,48*,49,50; p. 433 3,4,8,11,14,17,20,23,32,33,38,39,42,43,44,51,52,54 (6.3 assignment is long but should be mostly review)

10
2.4 p. 172 1-4,9,10,14,20,21,24,25,26 (in 14-26, describe in English what you did),30,33,34,37,38

(this day might be used as slack if the trig material goes slowly; 2.4 and 5.3 could be covered together).

I will be out of town from the 11th through the 15th. I will point you to a faculty member willing to help you in his/her (not my) office hours.
