Textbook: You can rent or buy, new or used, from any store. You can use either the 3rd or 4th edition of this textbook:
Homework: Answers to oddnumbered exercises are in the back of the book. I highly recommend working jointly on homework problems with fellow students. The homework problems in bold on the syllabus have matching Webwork problems, which must be submitted online. To pass this course, the Webwork problems are the minimum requirement; to earn an excellent grade, you will have to do the other assigned problems in your textbook.
Webwork: Webwork is a free online system that provides individualized homework problems, gives immediate feedback, and allows you to correct mistakes until the due date. Later, you can see detailed solutions online. Webwork is required in this course, and it is a major part of your grade. Webwork website
Grading: The course grade will be determined (subject to change announced in class) by your scores on Webwork, quizzes, exams and final exam. Without exception, you must take the final exam at the time scheduled by the college.
Help: My office hours are on Mondays and Wednesdays 4:30  5:45pm in my office, 1S209. Also, free math tutoring is available.
How to Study: (1.) Come to class (attendance is mandatory). (2.) Read the relevant sections after class. (3.) Do the homework. Leave time to think about it! (4.) Come to my office hours or the help room with any remaining questions. (5.) To study for a math exam, you must DO MORE PROBLEMS from past exams, homework and textbook.
