Welcome to Math 381 A, Autumn Quarter 2016.

The course discussion board is availble (link at right). Please take advantage of it to ask questions about homework problems or course topics. You might also use it as a way to arrange study groups. I will get immediate emails when posts are added to the board, so this is as good a way to contact me as email, but allows everyone to see my response.

For those students looking for an add code, I do not overload my courses. If there are opening in the first week, you can add yourself to the course. No adds will be allowed after one week. There are no add codes.

The first homework assignment will be posted soon.
