Homeworks
Webwork: online assignments

Remarks for written assignments. The written assignments should be brought to the Friday lectures or scanned and emailed by 9am on Friday. Graded assignments are returned on Friday lectures of the week after they are submitted. Unclaimed assignments can be picked up at my office ESB4109 when I am there.


Skills modules
Algebra skills module is posted on the Webwork and is due 9am on Friday September 13.
Geometry skills module is posted on the Webwork and is due 9am on Friday September 27.
Functions skills module will be posted on the Webwork and be due 9am on Friday October 11.
Workshops
Please register in and attend one of the workshops. You should expect to work in small groups on problems assigned by the workshop instructor. This experience should help you with applying the concepts you learn about in the lectures to solving problems.
