Several of you pointed out that problem #1 in the exam
was from Section 1.1 of the text, which was not supposed
to be covered by the exam.
My apologies. That was an oversight on my part. I have
modified the recorded grades to account for this in the
following way: The exam is now out of 90 points, and
problem #1 is declared extra credit. This way you get to
keep any points you got on that problem, but if you
didn't get any your grade is unaffected.

All of the past ICEs are now available through the "In
Class Exercises" link above. In the future I will post
these a day or two before an In Class Exercise day so
you can start early if you'd like to get ahead.
Also, there were a couple of typos on the current ICE
which I have corrected. If you see typos or errors on
any ICE please let me know so I can correct them too.

Your first two Webwork problem sets are now open. The
first will close on 8/28 and the second on 9/5. You
should try them immediately, so you know which ones
you will need help on.

I have activated WebWork for this class. You should
try to log in as soon as possible and let me know if
you have any problems.

Yes I know.
I'm aware that the solar eclipse will be happening
during our first class. This is a once in a lifetime event
(well actually it will be my third, but I'm old) and I
intend to let you go early -- probably around 2pm -- so
you can see it if you want.
However some of you are probably thinking you'll just
blow the class off entirely cuz it's the first day so how
important can it be, right?
It is important that you attend the first class because
that is when I will explain what you need to do to
succeed in the course. So as an added incentive, if at
least 3/4 of the class attends on the first day,
everyone in attendance will get 10 points extra credit
on their quiz scores. If less than 3/4 of you are in
attendance on Monday, no one gets the extra credit.
