Math 251 (Phillips) Week 1 homework
Instructions for written homework are
here (pdf).

Tuesday 26 September in class:
Turn in:
Sample midterm 0 problems (pdf).
Be sure to
read the
page on notation
for fractions
and page on notation
for intervals.
Getting the notation right is worth half the credit
on this assignment.

Solutions to the
sample midterm 0 problems (pdf).

Here is a collection of extra problems similar to
kinds used on Midterm 0.
(Note: There are no further problems involving graphs, but expect
such problems on the real Midterm 0.
SorryI don't have the program to make the graphs right now.)
Set 1;
Set 2;
Set 3;
Set 4.
Solutions to the first set will be posted Wednesday,
to the second and third sets Friday,
and to the fourth set in the second week of classes.

Wednesday 27 September 10:00 pm:
Submit the
WeBWorK
assignments
"practice" and "CandC4E11".
These (especially the first) are about learning to use
the WeBWorK system.

To make up for a poor score on the sample Midterm 0
(to get up to half the credit back),
turn in solutions to the following problems on Friday in class:
Set 2;
Set 3.
Set 2: Turn in full solutions;
getting the notation right is worth half the credit
on this assignment.
Set 3: Turn in only answers.
No partial credit,
including no credit for answers in which only the notation is wrong.
Both parts:
Write neatly
and in an organized manner.
Write the problems in order,
start every problem at the left margin of the page,
and leave enough space between problems that it is clear where each
one starts.
Write legibly.
(I will not grade anything which is not easy to grade.)

Solutions to the extra problems similar to kinds used on Midterm 0:
Set 1.
Some proofreading has been done, but
not enough.
Remember that there is extra credit for finding errors!

Getting the notation right is worth more than half the credit
on this assignment.
