The notes are not always complete, and are often different from what I do in class. Don't use them as a substitute for attending class.
Fall grades are done. Anyone who mailed me for their final exam and course grades by Wednesday morning, December 20, has gotten mail back from me. I won't be around till spring term starts. If you need to get in touch with me, send email but be patient, as I will not be checking mail regularly. Fall course pages will probably be removed a week or two after finals, so if there's anything you didn't grab that you want, you should get it now. Have a good vacation!
Open or download the problem set sheets. (They're PDF files.) Use the example sheets if you need help. You may do the homework on the problem set sheets, or on separate pieces of paper (please STAPLE everything you turn in).
Be sure you attempt the required number of problems to receive credit. Problems that you can't do in your head MUST have work shown, or you won't get credit for attempting them.
Problem Sets are due by the end of class on the due dates. Solutions will be posted after the problem sets are collected.
Examples are given for some homework problems. If you get stuck, come in during office hours. You're encouraged to work with other students on the homework.

The review sheets are to help you study. They aren't sample tests, they aren't graded, and there's nothing you have to turn in. If something is on a review sheet, it doesn't mean there is a similar problem on the test; if something is not on a review sheet, it doesn't mean there isn't a similar problem on the test. You're responsible for everything we've covered.
I used to hold in-person review sessions, but stopped due to low attendance. The notes and videos for the review sessions are linked below. They may not be in sync with the tests, so check the review sheets to see what you're responsible for.
These are notes [PDF] for the Review Sessions. Use them if you want to print them out or read them.
These are videos for the review sessions. You'll see me writing solutions to selected problems as I talk through the answers. I don't do all of the problems in the printed notes above.
If you're having personal problems: Please consider seeing Counseling Services. They're on the 3rd floor of Lyle Hall; they're free and confidential, and they've helped many of my students. It's natural to want to fix things yourself, but if your problems are causing you to miss class, to get behind in courses, or to get poor grades, it's best to get help.
