Week at a glance
Lectures
are on MWF (almost) following the syllabus on the Math 124 Materials website.
See the schedule of lectures below in purple.
Tuesday quiz sections are for worksheets and quizzes. Print all the
worksheets and bring them to quiz sections. Worksheets are graded for
participation. We post the solutions for you to check your work later. I will
announce the quiz topic in lecture on Mondays if you remind me. There are one
or two questions on each quiz, depending on the topic, usually similar to a
homework question.
Thursday sections are for practice problems and homework
questions. When you go to your Thursday section, you should have
looked at all of the assignment due that night and completed at least half of
it. Use this time with your TA and classmates to go over the more difficult and
challenging problems.
The
homework assignments are due on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11:45 PM. I recommend
you start your homework soon after the lecture. The material builds up. You
need to practice the previous topic before the next lecture. On the two midterm
weeks, assignments on the lectures from Friday are due on Monday.
