Washington state law requires that UW develop a policy for accommodation of student absences or significant hardship due to reasons of faith or conscience, or for organized religious activities. The UW's policy, including more information about how to request an accommodation, is available at Religious Accommodations Policy (here). Accommodations must be requested within the first two weeks of this course using the Religious Accommodations Request form (here).

Welcome to Math 381 A, Autumn quarter 2019.

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 (i.e., starting 10/2/19). There are no add codes.

The first writing assignment will be posted soon.

You will need to install lpsolve to solve LPs in this course. You can start here. The download site is here.
