The following is a “generic version” of Prof. Dyer’s Math 13 assignment schedule.    This schedule is based on a MW or TTH schedule, where each of the 32 class meeting has a duration of 2 hours.

 MATH 13 ASSIGNMENT SCHEDULE Slight changes may occur as the semester progresses.    Homework will be collected as indicated.    If you’re absent the day homework is due, turn it in the next class meeting (a 10% penalty will be assessed-don’t try to set your own schedule).    Remember:    YOUR METHODS OF SOLVING NUMERICAL PROBLMES MUST BE CLEARLY SHOWN TO RECEIVE CREDIT.
