Our weekly problem sessions will be held online every Friday, from 12:00-2:00pm, starting Fri Aug 25. We'll use the same Zoom link that we use for office hours.
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.
Course mechanics: Homework in Math 127, The workflow in Math 127, Check-ins.
Background: Writing proofs (optional).
Old samples (the ones used in YouTube exam run-throughs): Exam 1, Exam 2, Exam 3, Final exam.
