Schedule
Tentative
Schedule and Homework of MAT118
This schedule is, as the title indicates, work in progress. It
will be updated so that you will always find the homework due the
following week.
It is your responsibility to check it accordingly.
Homework is a mandatory part of the course. Homework assignments are
due each week in recitation. Under no circumstances will late homework
be accepted.
The numbering in the schedule below refer to the course textboox Using
and Understanding Mathematics, by Jeffrey Bennet and William Briggs,
fourth edition (If you have an older edition, make sure you are working
in the indicated problems).
It is allowed (and encouraged) to discuss the problems with other
students in the class, however you (and only you) are responsible for
the write up. All the work you hand in should be your own, not copied
or "inspired" from someone else's work (This includes "fishing" in the
Internet for answers). Suspiciously similar solutions will
receive no credit and will be reported to the Academic Judiciary.
New material is presented every week. You shoud read the corresponding
section of the texbook before the class.
