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:

  1. Exam 1. Week of 6/12/11 – 6/18/11 (covers WW#1-5)

  2. Exam 2. Week of 7/3/11 – 7/9/11 (covers WW#6-10)

  3. Final Exam. August 4th - 6th (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.
