The following is a “generic version” of Prof. Dyer’s Math D assignment schedule.    This schedule is based on a MW or TTH schedule, where each of the 31 class meeting has a duration of 2 hours.

 

 

 

                                                      MATH D ASSIGNMENT SCHEDULE

Slight changes may occur as the semester progresses.    Homework will be collected as indicated.    Generally, the problems are paired up, in that for each even-numbered problem assigned, a similar odd-numbered problem (with the answer in the back of your text) is also assigned.    If you just do the odd-numbered problems, you will get little or no credit for such work.    Remember:    YOUR METHODS OF SOLVING MUST BE CLEARLY SHOWN TO RECEIVE CREDIT.
