Welcome to the class! Class announcements and useful documents will appear here. New material will be added at the top.
I am teaching Math 187 and Math 275 in Fall 2018. My classes are M187 12--12:50 MWF, M275 9--10:15 MWF.
I am the coordinator for M488, the senior outcomes assessment activity, which meets once on a Saturday morning later in the semester in our computer lab Mathematics 136 (there will be two alternative dates TBA). I have the regular weekly PBC meeting at a time TBA, and logic seminar weekly at a time TBA. I am proposing to have time wih my graduate student 1-3 Thursdays, and class office hours MWF tentatively 10:30--11:30 pm and 3--4 pm. At other times MWF from about 8:30 am until about 5 pm I'm very possibly to be found in my office. TTh I do not know what my routine will be.
It is also worth noting that I am recycling Dr. Ultman's assignments from last semester: please be sware that I will be following a routine of reading the assignment before each lecture, rereading it immediately after the lecture and possibly adding a problem based on how things went.
I will also give roughly one quiz or written assignment each week so that I have some familiarity with your written work before the first exam.
It will be to your advantage to turn in your marked-up test review paper to me at the exam or on Monday (no, you can't have it while you are taking your test); I will give a homework check for evidence of participation (this is optional; there is no penalty for not doing it). Here are the LA's solutions to the sample test papers, which may be useful to you for study purposes. Every time I click on that link, my computer wants to print it! I have no idea why, and I don't know if you will have the same experience. I haven't posted solutions to the second quiz yet, but they will appear, if not today then tomorrow.
Make sure that you remember to get yourself a non-graphing scientific calculator for the test!
I also lectured additional points about 12.4 and 12.5.
I will tentatively schedule assignments for a week or two of the near future sometime this weekend.
The dot product pre-assignment really is due Monday.
I changed the due date for the first assignment to Friday (but this does not necessarily mean that I will change the due date for the second assignment).
If you do not know how to access Webassign, please come see me.
