| Lecture Notes
The 9th or 10th edition of the textbook can be used for this course.
All material covered is the same and independent of textbook editions.
Homework problems between editions are the same.
The homework assignments must be neatly prepared and
handed in by 11:00am in class on the due date. We will spend class time doing homework
problems. I will provide helpful
suggestions, do similar problems, and give hints on all homework.
Please do not ask to submit late homework.
I will not accept them!
I will not accept homework without worked out problems. Homework assignments with answers only
will be given a zero. You must show the work for credit. You should do a similar odd problem
to make sure you understand the homework. Each homework problem (or answer) is worth 1.
multiple parts (or require multiple answers), will have each part (or answer) worth 1. Each homework assignment is worth 10 points.
For example, if an assignments has 18 problems (counting multiple parts e.g. 3a, 3b, 3c 3d
would count as 4 problems or if a problem requires 2 answers that would count as 2) and you miss 2 problems, your homework score is 16/18 = 8.9 points.

The worksheets are designed to help
you understand material and are aligned with the
Learning Outcomes to provide practice and feedback.
All students are expected to watch and take notes on the videos of the chapters
before class. This is a flipped classroom (i.e. part online and part in classroom).
There will be NO in class lectures! In class, we will work on homework problems,
briefly discuss topics, interact with each other,
and do the in class worksheets.
Each worksheet will have 15 questions each worth 1 point (partial credit is possible).
Worksheets with answers only will be given a zero. You must show the work for credit.
Failure to watch the chapter videos and take notes,
will make the worksheets very difficult for you. No make-ups allowed.
Do not ask to submit late worksheets.
