Assignment 2 is due before the start of class on Monday, September 25. One part of the assignment is on WeBWorK; the class name is MATH180-101_2017W1.

The second part of the assignment is here. Written solutions must be typed. You may use any typesetting program for the first two assignments, but by the third assignment, you must use LaTeX. You can use this system online, on platforms such as Overleaf or ShareLaTeX. To help you get started, here is a copy of the source code for the assignment itself, which you can copy and paste into Overleaf or ShareLaTeX. You are welcome to post questions about LaTeX in Piazza or ask in office hours, but you may also find these resources helpful.

Quiz 2 will be on Monday, September 25. The question will be similar to one of the following questions from the WeBWorK part of Assignment 2: 5, 9, 10, 17, 21, 22, 26, 27, 28, 29.

Assignment 3 is due on Monday, October 2.

Document camera notes from the lectures will be posted here: September 6, September 11, September 18.
