Links for exam reviews and notes
may be *inaccurate* (not updated) or missing
*until their introduction during class*.

"Prep" means preparation done *before* class, with your
questions always noted for discussion in class!
Ideally read earlier than *just* before class, so you can post
general questions you want addressed into Piazza in time for me to note them,
and maybe others add "Me, too!".

Sometimes extra **In Class**
activities are mentioned (besides questions and active use of preparatory reading).

The general homework pattern is introduction on a Tuesday, and then work is due in the following week: assigned solver due date is the following Monday, the assigned reviewer writes on Tuesday, the rest of the class comments on Wednesday, I go over things that did not get resoloved on Thursday. The Tuesday when the reviewer is reporting on one assignment, the next assignment is introduced.... A week after I wrap up some assignments there is a quiz made available after class on that assignement and 1-2 previous asignements, due the following Monday by noon.

- Numbered problems are in the class text unless otherwise mentioned. For instance, "2.1: 3, 9" refers to the section 2.1, exercises 3 and 9. Sometimes I will give a parenthetical comment after a problem number, either clarifying it or slightly modifying it
- I put 2nd edition numbers in square braces: 11[10] means problem 11 in 3rd edition, with a reminder that it is 10 in the second edition. Similarly with Section numbers: 5.1[4.1] means section 5.1 in 3rd edition, 4.1 in second edition.
- There are hints at the back of the book.
- Everyone should work on all the problems in the regular homework.
It is
*much*less helpful for learning to only look at completed solutions that others come up with. Days ahead I will post what groups are to be original solvers and first reviewers for each problem. - Under no circumstances should old official solutions from the text or me be consulted or posted.
- The regular homework
**Due**date is the date for the assigned original solver. For others to keep up and not be distracted by a posted solution, it is also a good day for you to have done your work. - I will generally not explicitly mention the next two days in the sequence for others' analysis (first reviewers and then everyone as commenters). They are standard.
- Other special individual assignments will explicitly indicate being
**Due**into Sakai by the end of the day listed (11:55PM).
