Announcements will be posted here during the semester. Please refer to this web-page regularly.

I believe that the grades for the first test are now accessible to each of you. But, I would appreciate it if one of you would e-mail me to confirm that the scores really are are available now!

The answers for Test 1 are posted on the homework page. You should note that some problems have multiple versions. Your particular test has only one version of each problem. The correct answer for each problem is always the first answer, except for the Rabbit problem. I, inadvertently, miss-wrote that particular problem, so your answer to that problem was counted as being correct. Fortunately (for me!), that was the only error that I made on the test.

Note that daily reading assignments and the solutions to relevant homework problems are given on the homework web-page. Follow the Homework link above, on the left.

You are expected to do the reading assignments before coming to class. Suggested homework problems are given, along with their solutions. It is best if you first do the reading, then solve the problems, and then check your answers against the solutions. If you keep up with the reading and homework problems then you should be successful in this class.
