I am assigning you homework to give you a reason to think about what we're covering in class every day and to help keep you from falling behind. It also lets me know how effectively I am teaching. The homework problems you receive will be different from the other students, so please be sure to solve the problems yourself. Often, though, the problems will be fairly simple and you should use the homework as a sort of test of your handle on the material before you look in the book or ask a friend. You will be given two or three chances to submit an answer to MyMathLab. Please be careful!

You will be able to register for MyMathLab here. The course ID needed to register for MyMathLab is located on the course sakai page. The course ID number will also be given to you on the first day of class.

Your grade will be calculated according to the following:

10% - Quizzes (on MyMathLab)

10% - In-class assignments and participation

25% - Homework (on MyMathLab)

20% - Midterm

35% - Final
