LECTURES AND RECITATIONS: The main lectures for this course take place on MWF, and each student is also assigned to one of six recitation sections which meet on Thursdays. The essential course content will all be presented during the MWF lectures. Time in the Thursday recitation classes will be spent on i) review of main points from the lectures, ii) additional examples, iii) discussion of homework problems, and (iv) quizzes.
RECITATION SECTIONS INSTRUCTORS:
OFFICE HOURS: For help with course content you may take advantage of group office hours scheduled by any MATH 266 or MATH 267 instructor. The current schedule is posted here. Please see me or your recitation instructor for other kinds of questions, including your own grades, turning in homework, etc.COURSE GRADE:
|Three hour exams||20% of grade each|
|Quizzes and homework||15% of grade|
|Final exam||25% of grade|
HOMEWORK: The WebAssign online homework system will be used for most of the homework. Working these problems in a careful and timely manner is the most important way you have to learn the material. Normally a new assignment will appear on WebAssign at the beginning of each MWF lecture, except for exam days and the last week of class, due 7 days later. Some additional, supplementary problems may occasionally be assigned-- these will be announced on Blackboard.
These will take place
during the regular class lecture time on September 23, October

QUIZZES: There will be quizzes given during the recitation class on September 10, October 8, November 5, and December 10. They will take about half the class, and specific topics to be covered will be announced a week or so ahead of time.
