Welcome to Math 1010 Online! The backbone of this class will be 16 WeBWorK assignments as outlined on this page. All assignments will open Friday mornings at 7:00am and will close seven days later on Friday at 11:59pm except for Sets #1 and 2 which will open on Monday at 7:00am and close 11 days later on Friday at 11:59pm. Assignments #7, 8 , 11 and 12 will be open for 2 weeks. You should finish work on any homework before the next one opens. The table below lists the topics of each HW set, and links to relevant web pages.

Throughout this class, refer back to the **Principles**
and **Glossary**
pages. The **Course Information**
contains details about exams and grading issues, and general
suggestions for your study.

**due August 5**^{th}This set will be a review of the entire semester. Its purpose is to help you prepare for the final exam.

There are two midterm exams and one final exam in this class. You
need to sign up for them through U
online at least **two weeks prior to taking the exam** at
these dates:

**Exam 1.**Week of 6/12/11 – 6/18/11 (covers WW#1-5)**Exam 2.**Week of 7/3/11 – 7/9/11 (covers WW#6-10)**Final Exam. August 4**^{th}**- 6**^{th}**(covers WW#1-16)**

The course is meant to be independent of a particular textbook.
All the material is described in the web pages that go with this
class. However, the web pages are very concise and don't contain many
examples. Therefore it will be almost indispensable for you to own or
borrow some sort of reference text for Intermediate Algebra. For
example, the textbook for our ordinary in-class sections of Math 1010
is suitable. Currently this is the fifth edition of Larson,
Hostetter, *Intermediate Algebra*. You can purchase it in the
University book store or elsewhere. When working on this class you
should also have an ordinary dictionary handy, and you may find it
worthwhile to purchase a mathematical dictionary as well. Several are
available, I personally like and use the Harper Collins Dictionary of
Mathematics which is an inexpensive paperback.
