Homework: You cannot learn mathematics just by watching me or others during class. Mathematics is a lot like playing an instrument or sport. Becoming proficient requires practice. The homework is your opportunity to practice. Try to maintain a constant level of effort. Do some homework each day. At each class homework will be assigned and designated to hand in by the end of the next class period. I will grade one of the homework problems and put the solutions in the class folder after the due date. Note that exercises are consecutively numbered in each chapter. Answers for odd- numbered problems are given in the back of the text. You are encouraged to attempt all of them. The only way to learn this material is to do problems.
