Homework will usually be assigned once a week on Wednesday and will be due on the following Wednesday. No late homework will be accepted.

Syllabus: The course will start with Sections 2.6 and 5.4 and then proceed through Chapters 6 and 7. The material in Section 6.1 and 6.2 should probably be familiar to those who have taken 115A.
