10250 Tentative Daily Schedule

This is a tentative schedule for Math 10250. The information is a rough projection of the course structure for the semester, and is subjected to change. Please take note of course anouncements during the semester.

Chapter 0 material are considered as review. If you have trouble with them or any other course material please see your instructor immediately.

The activity sheets give an outline of the lecture for each class day. You may look over it and read the relevant section ahead of the lecture to learn better in class. Click on "Activity" for a pdf copy of the activity sheet used on each class day.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please note that having a copy of the activity sheet does NOT mean you could skip class. Much more material and explanations are discussed in class. Moreover, active participation in the class discussions is the key to learning mathematics.
