### Homework Schedule

It is important to both complete and understand the homework. I encourage you to form study groups, however, it is very important that in the end you come to an understanding of the material for yourself. You will most likely find the homework in this course challenging at times, so it is important to begin early and give yourself a chance to talk to others (for example me) before the due date. Note that I have set up a discussion board through wolfware at ma 241-006 homework forum.

The required homework is posted below. Notice I have indicated which portion of my lecture notes as well as which part of the textbook is most relevant to the assigment. Beware, sometimes the homework is not exactly matched up with the lecture notes link, sometimes you need to look at the next few pages. It would be wise to print out a copy of the lecture notes - you will find them helpful for certain homework problems. It is your responsibility to finish the homework assigned by the due date (before class). Anytime after the due date, any problem is fair game for a quiz (unless otherwise instructed by me).

The homework quizzes will be on the odd problems, unless I explicitly say otherwise.

### Maple Schedule

Listed below are the tentative Maple dates. Please take note of their due dates and plan accordingly. If you plan to do these (they are in some sense optional, see the grading scheme for details) assignments beware that it is common that it will take you several days to sucessfully submit a given assignment.It is your responsibility to work out the technical details before the due date. Do not ask me for an extension, there is enough time to finish these if you start early.
