The course notes can always be found here at the top of the page. (Last revision: Thu Apr 23, 1:00pm.)
Our weekly problem sessions will be held every Friday, from 10:30am-noon, room TBA.
Homework for this class can be submitted either in person or online. If you want to submit a homework assignment online, please submit it via Canvas, which you probably know how to use better than I do. (If you don't, check out the tutorials here; the only part of Canvas we will use is online assignment submission.) If Canvas doesn't know that you're enrolled in this course, please email me at email@example.com, and I'll make that happen ASAP.
If you submit homework online, I will very much appreciate it if you can use a document scanner app to produce a single PDF file instead of lots of jpegs (photos). For most phones, either a document scanner app comes with the phone, or you can get one for free or at least cheap. Specifically:
Also, when you name your files, please use the following filename convention. (The convention is shown here for a student named Sarah Jane Smith doing PS01 and submitting in pdf format; please substitute your own name, PSxx, and your file format as appropriate.)
If you're interested in typesetting math, the system I use to make my handouts is called LaTeX, and it can be downloaded for free (in Windows format) at http://www.miktex.org. If you own a Mac (system OS X) or a Linux computer, you already own a copy of this program, as it's been a standard Unix program for about 20 years. And for our purposes, the key point is that under any system, LaTeX can produce pdf output that is ideal for online homework submission.
LaTeX is well worth learning, if you have some free time; it's used for manuals and technical reports throughout nerd-dom. For self-study, I highly recommend the LaTeX book by Leslie Lamport, which you can purchase here.
In the box below are some acronyms that I use all the time, both in class and when grading your work. You are welcome to use them as well.
