Below are the weekly homework assignments. These will not be
collected. However the material from the homework will appear on
the quizzes and exams. The dates given are when the material is
first scheduled to be tested on either an exam or a quiz. Quiz
material should be covered during the Monday discussion section just
before the quiz. You are responsible for the material even if the
University closes on the day of the discussion section. It is a good
idea to look over all material * before * it is covered in the
lectures.

These assignments are subject to changes announced either in class or on this webpage.
