Quizzes will be given approximately biweekly, and the average grade for the quizzes counts for 30% of the final grade.
A quiz typically consists of four problems taken from the homework.
The following are not part of the grading scheme:
- Attendance
However, missing the classes one misses at least the quizzes which are a substantial part of the grade scheme.
- Homework (never collected nor graded)
The homework will be given every class, and the problems proposed for quizzes are taken
from the homework.
The list below indicates problems assigned for Homework. Typically, these are many odd-numbered exercises
for the chapters covered in class.
These exercises have their answers in Appendix H (pp A57 -- A130) of the book.
To solve a problem means to produce (not to "guess", though) a correct answer; no more, no less.
This homework is big, never collected, and never graded. However, all quiz problems are taken just from the homework,
and the quizzes contribute to the final grade substantially.
As this is a 4-credit-hour course, the students are expected to spend at least 8 hours each week outside of class and recitations on work related to this course.
It may be helpful to use custom
Homework Hints if one is in trouble with a specific problem. That, however, works only with exercises numbered
in red .
I am aware of the way to find answers to all questions
on the web. In principle, instead of doing exercises, one can read and memorize all solutions. That is a very non-efficient way to learn math,
and I do not recommend it. The textbook is designed such that a student almost never needs to look up these solutions. (Rare exceptions are very few problems from Chapter 7 which may be looked up using some software tools.) It is much more efficient
to search for similar questions as examples worked out in detail in the text.

Homework, Class and Quizzes Structure
- Homework is assigned every class. It consists of solving problems listed above.
- In Class I begin with solving several problems from previous homework, primarily on demand.
After that, I briefly explain ideas for further material, and show as many examples (mostly even numbered exercises) as time allows.
- Quizzes contain four problems; these are problems taken from the homework.
