Subject Matter
The pages below outline the subject matter covered in this class. The
list may expand somewhat as the semester unfolds. The pages
have cross links. However, you can work through them in the given
sequence, except that the first two, Principles, and Glossary, are
meant to be referred to as needed.
Some of these web pages are marked as follows:
- Interactive Page.
The page contains an interactive applet that lets you practice certain
skills. Unfortunately these applets do not work on all systems and
with all browsers. In particular they seem to fail on
Macintoshes.
- Applications. These pages discuss how the
mathematics you learn in this class can be used to solve certain types
of word problems.
