Calendar – UPDATED

Homework assignments start with online WebAssign Warmups; once you have completed those, move on to the Paper Problems. I will record both types of homeworks at the end of each chapter. 

I recommend that you do not use a calculator on the homework, since calculators are not permitted on the Mastery Quizzes. However, after completing problems you might want to verify the reasonableness of your answers with a graphing calculator or a free online tool such as Desmos or Wolfram Alpha.

Mastery Quizzes will be randomly generated from large multiple-choice problem banks based on the homework assignments.  All tests, and the final exam, are made up of Mastery Quizzes. You will have limited in-class opportunities to retake Mastery Quizzes of your choosing according to the calendar below.
