Email meMATH 150 HOMEHOME

• CLASS & HOMEWORK SCHEDULE – TENTATIVE SCHEDULE (SPRING 2017)

WHEN THERE'S A TEST:

BRING A SCIENTIFIC CALCULATOR (FORBIDDEN ON SOME PARTS), A PENCIL + ERASER, AND YOUR HOMEWORK!

START PREPARING YOUR NOTES FOR THE FINAL (PART 2)!

M (1/30; Day 1): Hello, Ch.1 Review (Do on your own! Turn in the Ch.1 HW together with the Ch.2 HW at the first test), Do 2.1

You can do all the HW through 2.1.

You may want to do 2.1 first and then do the Ch.1 HW over the weekend if necessary. If you’re drowning, take Math 141 or the Math 15 refreshers (you can do 15 together with 150, though it might be a good idea to just do the 15s). In fact, ALEKS licenses can be obtained on http://www.aleks.com even without taking a 15. WebAssign is also a good resource (for 141 or 150 material) that you can purchase; email me for the class key.

Think about it; we will discuss next time: What are properties of limits? How do we deal with infinity? What’s the relationship between limits and asymptotes?

W (2/1; Day 2): Do 2.2, Start 2.3 (Parts A and B, through page 2.3.7).

You can do all the HW through 2.3, #6.
