- Homework will be assigned frequently, and homework assignments will be due
two regular class periods following the assignment (leaving a day before an

should be considered as course material. An excellent link for
historical material is the MacTutor
History of Mathematics page.
- I will make every effort to return homework and exam papers a week or
