Announcements and handouts will be available on this page. Since announcements may be posted at any time, you should check this page frequently. However, I will try to make sure that important announcements and handouts are mentioned in the RSS feed. Make sure you hard refresh this page to ensure that you are not reading a cached version. Handouts will be PDF files, but are available to students in other formats upon request.
18 December. Thanks to Molly Meade and Laura Harley for reminding me to post the location for the exam. I will also send out a mail, once our teaching support website is active (at 7 AM). The exam is at 8 AM in Chem 1300 (near North University and Fletcher). I will also post signs outside my office and on the classroom door.
16 December. I have posted a review sheet for the final exam. This sheet is just a typewritten copy of what was discussed in class on Wednesday, and the beginning of the review session on Friday.
Remember that there are extra office hours 7--8 AM on Monday. These will be held in my office (1851 EH), as usual.
Have a good winter break!
15 December (10 AM). I have posted homework solutions written up by Wendy, and by the instructor who taught this course last semester. Note that that instructor did not assign exactly the same problems we did, so that there will be some small differences.
15 December (12 m). I have just posted a handout containing almost all the quiz questions, both from our class and from the other section. I will post homework solutions later on Friday.
8 December (7 PM). The homework from set 29 is problems 1, 2, 6, 9, and 11.
8 December. In Monday's and Wednesday's classes, we discussed the arithmetic of fractions, starting with addition (in particular, the idea of putting fractions over a common denominator before adding), then moving on to multiplication (where students need to be cautioned not to try to put fractions over a common denominator, instead multiplying in the naïve way), then to division (where putting over a common denominator, dividing numerator and denominator, and inverting and multiplying all work!). We also reviewed the concepts of measurement and partitive division as an aid to understanding division of fractions.
Students should read Section 6.4 for Monday's class.
Homework for Wednesday is homework set 26, and part of homework set 29. (I'll post the exact problem numbers from homework set 29 later on Saturday.)
