Current Notes:  (1420/26 Sep 16)

Test One scores are posted, as are some more points for MyMathLab homework.  Several of y'all did a great job, many had credible performances, and some of you are disappointed.  In all cases, it is important to keep going.  If you are pleased with your grade, keep going.  If you aren't, make some adjustments and keep going.  We are about 200 points into a 1000 point course; there is plenty of time left to succeed.

Approved Solutions are posted for Test One.  Review the problems you missed, and make sure you know how to work them.  The content of this test will show up over and over again embedded in future test questions.  If you still don't understand how to do a problem after reviewing the solutions, stop by my office.  I'll be glad to explain it to you.

Some of you managed to sign up for the wrong section of online homework.  If you have done a substantial amount of homework and didn't get any points, that is probably what happened.  If this applies to you, get yourself registered for the correct section, then stop by my office to get some points for the work you've already done.  This will NOT require you to buy another access code; if you have trouble, come see me.

Did I mention I have office hours four days a week, and I LOVE it when students stop by to talk about math?

Good deal for MATH 124 students:  The Math Tutoring Clinic is open daily (Monday-Friday 0900-1700) for your use.  Our tutors are smart, talented, patient, and comitted to helping you master the material in this course.  The enterprise is funded by student fees; there is no additional cost.  Several of my students have credited the work they did there as essential to their success in math class.  More information is here.

I've found a few people that not only know how to succeed in a math class, they were bold enough to write it down for you.  Sometimes, they talk about "calculus," but if you insert "math" it will work just as well.  Links are here.

Do math every day.
