    Pre-lecture Readings and Quizzes (quizzes close at 11:59pm on the date shown)

    Each week there will be a list of required readings and an associated online "quiz" due on Sunday. These readings and quizzes are intended to prepare you for the work you will do in class in the coming week. The "quiz" is administered using WeBWorK, which can be accessed through Connect or at the following link:
    WeBWorK Login Page

    Some comments on the quizzes:
  • The "quizzes" are in fact short online problem sets
  • They are not timed and can be completed anytime before the closing date.
  • You can also leave midway through the quiz and return to complete it later if needed.
  • Note that for some questions you will be allowed multiple attempts, whereas for others you will only have one. Please take special care when answering single-attempt problems, as I will not increase your number of attempts if you make an error.
  • The goal of these "quizzes" is to ensure you do the reading and are prepared for class, and also to inform me of your understanding, so that I can tailor the class work to the areas that need the most attention. Please take them seriously.

    Some comments on the readings:
  • Ideally, you will read all of each section listed. However, to save you time and focus your reading, I will try to specify exactly what parts of each section you really must read.
  • You should write out and keep a list of all definitions (usually bolded) and Theorems that you encounter. You are responsible to know these and they almost certainly will come up on exams.

    There will be weekly homework, posted here on Wednesdays and due the Thursday of the following week.
