Prerequisite: C or higher in MAT 122 or MAT 123 or AMS 151 or level 4 on the mathematics placement examination Instructor: Dr. William Dawes Instructor Office Hours: TBA TA Office Hours: TBA email Address: [email protected] Text: Text available at the University Bookstore when announced in lecture Other: A numeric keypad from eInstruction, a “clicker”, available at the University Bookstore. You will need to go into BlackBoard and register your keypad. Do not register your keypad at the eInstruction website; do it through the BlackBoard page for this course Your grade in this course is determined by the quality of your answers to the questions in the text, the quality of your group’s work in recitation, your participation in Lecture Activities, and on three or four tests.
