Homework and In-class Assignments

Assigned work is listed here with most recent work listed first.
    Definitions
  • "With reading": Do these problems after you read a section, in preparation for class. Do not turn your solutions in.
  • "In class": These problems will be assigned to be done in class in groups. Each group will turn in one solution set to be graded for credit.
  • "Then do": Do these problems after the section has been covered in class. These problems are generally a little more challenging than the ones assigned with the reading. Do not turn your solutions in.
  • Questions in italics are NOT available in the Wiley Plus system.
  • You must also do the assignments posted in Wiley Plus (Reading and Homework). These assignments contribute to your "Homework" grade.
