Exam 1 review will be held at 7:00 A.M. in the usual class room on June 13th 2007 (there will be both a review and a brief lecture).

Extra credit assignment for the exam one. Write up and turn in solutions to the practice exam by June 13th. You must also come to talk with me for 5 minutes about concepts in the course, how your doing, and questions which I may ask you or you may ask me. You will not get full credit for the extra credit unless you both turn in solutions and come meet with me. Upon sucessful completion 5 points will be added to your exam 1 score. You may do this assignment in groups.

Here is the practice exam for exam 1.

Here is the practice exam for exam 2.

One page of notes one sided will be allowed on the exam 2.

Five points extra credit will be given to students who write up and turn in solutions to the second practice exam by July 12th 2007. If you found that meeting with me or doing the practice exam helped you with the first exam I encourage you to do both again for the second exam. There will be an exam review on Friday the 13th of July 2007.

Final exam August 2nd 7:30-9:30 LCB 121. You may bring one page of notes front and back. We start reviewing for the final exam on July 27th. Students may find it beneficial to review old exams and quizzes.

·Homework Assignments

A note regarding homework. On the day that the homework is due I will answer questions on homework which students submit to me (via e-mail) for the first 10 to 20 minutes of class. Students must submit questions to me on the homework via e-mail 24 hours before class but generally I will check my e-mail the night before class starts sometime after 6 P.M. I most likely will not be able to answer everyone's questions (probably just a few people's questions) since I only have 10-20 minutes, but I am more than willing to discuss your questions with you via e-mail, and before or after class. I strongly encourage students to ask questions and get help if they are confused on course material or homework.

Homework 1. Due May 30th 2007.

Homework 2. Due June 4th 2007.

Homework 3. Due June 13th 2007

Homework 4. Due June 29th 2007.

Homework 5. Due July 9th 2007.

Homework 6 due July 25th 2007
