MML - Orientation Assignment

Reading Homework

Read course syllabus

Read Section 1.1, Pages 2-8

For each "Reading homework" I recommend doing all of the examples on paper by-hand and ensuring that you understand why each step is being done. If you don't understand, write a note to yourself in the margin of your paper, and ask me and/or a tutor for clarification. This won't actually be collected for credit, but it will probably raise your overall course grade by at least 10 percentage points.

Read Section 1.2, Pages 12-19

- Optional -- Learning about the "Standard Equation of a Circle" on page 19

Read pages 21-23 about "Graphing with a Calculator"

Read Pages AP-2 - AP-6 (these are pages near the back of the book in Appendix A)

"Other" Homework

Check E-mail & Complete E-mail assignment - Due Tuesday

If you have not received an e-mail from me by 5pm tonight, send me an e-mail from your WOU student e-mail account and request the e-mail assignment from me.

If you added the course today, send me an e-mail from your WOU student e-mail account and request the e-mail assignment from me by 5pm tonight. I will respond before 8pm. You are still responsible for completeing the assignment on time.

Study for Final Exam

The exam will be over Chapters 1-5

Omit Sections 2.4, 2.5, 3.4, and parts of 4.4 and 4.7 (basically, anything to do with solving an inequality).

Exam will be more heavily weighted on Chapters 4 and 5 material, but you'd be foolish to think that the other material wasn't important

Expect there to be story problems on the final exam. Expect to have to interpret what things mean in a story, and to have to interpret/explain your answer with appropriate units.

Write yourself a notecard (see syllabus for specific instructions on notecards)
