 Things to do and information You should be keeping up with the syllabus. Your life will be better in this course if you glance at material ahead of time, before the lectures. And your life will be almost surely unsuccessful in this course if you don't do most of the homework problems: practice! Conclusion The course is over. I thank students for their efforts. Grades have been submitted to the Registrar's computer system late Monday afternoon, May 10. Information about course grades is here.

The final exam Here is a version of the final exam, in a somewhat more compact format. Mr. Apostolopoulos identified an error (the number of pieces in problem 5's formulas) which has been fixed.
According to university rules, the final exams must be kept but students may inspect their graded exams. Here is a discussion of the grades and grading.
Information about assigning course grades, submitted to the Registrar's computer system late Monday afternoon, May 10, is here.

Answers to the second exam Here are detailed answers to version A of the first exam with shorter answers for version B. Please tell me any comments or corrections. Copies of the answers will be returned with graded exams in lecture on Monday, April 19.

The third workshop Please hand in a writeup of the second problem on Tuesday, April 6.
In sketching the volume, please realize that a scaled sketch is a good response and perfectly adequate (109 is much bigger than 10!).
Remember, writeups will be graded both for mathematical content and exposition. Please use complete sentences, label your diagrams, and explain your computations. More is in your textbook, and here.

The second workshop Please hand in writeups of two problems: the first problem and the fourth problem of the second set of workshop problems on Tuesday, March 9.
Problem 4 is the lecturer's favorite workshop problem, and the domain is slightly subtle. It was inspired by waiting on line at the post office. This is why.
Remember, writeups will be graded both for mathematical content and exposition. Please use complete sentences, label your diagrams, and explain your computations. More is in your textbook, and here.

The first workshop Please hand in a writeup of the third problem on Tuesday, February 16. Be careful discussing a point on a line which is tangent to the twisted cubic at a point! (The logic is intricate!)

If you did not attend the recitations on Tuesday, January 26, we (Mr. Nanda and I) strongly recommend that you follow the links on this web page, and print out the General Introduction and the four "Playing with ..." files. Then go to a Rutgers computer lab and work through the "Playing with ..." pages. It is probably easier and certainly more fun if you can do this with another person working at the same task on a nearby computer. Maple will be needed in several assignments in this course and it may help you explore and learn some of the course material. 1/28/2010

Old Math 251 material
I most recently taught this course in the fall 2008 semester. Here is a link to a great deal of course material from that semester, including exams and review material (with solutions to most problems), and course diaries (which I will likely use extensively).

Previous to that semester, I last taught this course in spring 2006 with a different textbook but the order of the topics and the difficulty of the examples are much the same in both textbooks (the one used then and the one used in this course). So what's in this link is quite relevant. Again, there are old exams, review problems, solutions to most of the exam and review problems, a detailed diary, and other material.

Less relevant but a bit more recent is material for an honors version of Math 251 which I taught in fall 2006. Here is a link to that material.
