The primary goal of this course is to develop basic skills and understanding of basics concepts of mathematics. Doing well in this course requires some effort on your part: Come to class, read the book, review your notes, do the homework problems, and ask questions. The exams will be based on homework problems. We will devote some class time to addressing any problems you might have and you can feel free email me, or arrange for time outside of class. There should be no excuse for not clearing up any problems you might have. This class is intended to be enjoyable, not tedious.
