Winter 2010




Course materials such as the syllabus, lab and project assignments, quizzes and quiz solutions, exam information, etc. are posted in Blackboard.

The following is an updated course schedule. You should check this schedule frequently for updated information on topics covered in class, assigned practice problems, lab/project due dates, quiz and test dates, etc. Although you are not required to turn in the homework problems, I strongly recommend that you do at least these problems to master the material. The weekly quizzes will often contain problems that are very similar to the assigned practice problems.

Note: Your textbook is a custom edition for Cal Poly, and contains additional practice problems for each section at the end of each chapter. Unless otherwise specified, the problems listed below are the exercises immediately following each section. For example, the problems listed for Section 2.1 are the exercises that begin on p. 65.
