MAT 534 Problem Sets
Algebra I

Fall 2009

There will be weekly problem sets collected in the Thursday lecture. Problems due one week will often practice material covered the previous week. It is important to do the problems in a timely manner; do not postpone problems until the last minute.


In exceptional circumstances such as a documented medical absence, etc., the instructor will drop the missing problem set and compute the problem set total using the remaining problem sets.

You are encouraged to work with other students in the class, but your final write-up must be your own and must be based on your own understanding. Moreover, write-ups must be legible, etc. Write-ups which prove too difficult for the grader to read may be marked incorrect or may be returned to the student to be rewritten. All questions regarding grading of a problem set should be addressed to the instructor in a timely fashion.

In computing final grades, only the 10 best problem sets (out of 11 total graded problem sets) will be used.

In the assignments below, please work through all problems. Only the RED problems will be graded. Please direct any other questions regarding problem sets to your instructor.
