MML  Orientation Assignment
Reading Homework
Read course syllabus
Read/Review the following sections:
A.1  A.7 on pgs 922924
A.18 on pg 929
A.20  A.23 on pg 930
A.25 on pg 931
A.26 on pgs 931933 about the following errors:
Syntax, Window Range, No Sign Change, Nonreal Answer, Divide by Zero
Read Section 5.2  pgs 243248
For each "Reading homework" I recommend doing all of the examples on paper byhand 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 5.3  pgs 252256
