This is the page for information specific to sections 1A1 and 1A3 of MATH 100; See the Canvas page for coursewide information (assessments, course policies, and the like) including the link to the online homework (WeBWorK).
Ahead of each class you must read the relevant section from a textbook of your choice. For weeks 27 the quoted section numbers are for the recommended CLP1 textbook; corresponding section numbers in a few other textbooks (refs [2,5,6,10] below) may be found in this coordination table. For weeks 1,8,9 there is also reading from the book [7] below; for weeks 10,11 the suggested reading is from the book [2]. Suggested problems for each lecture are from the same book as the suggested reading (CLP and OIL have a separate problem book but it is available at the same link).
