Math 118 Section B1
Summer Session 2, 2004

Homework assignments, sample exams and other course details will be posted on this website.
If you are interested in doing an extra-credit assignment, please ask me to come up with something. If there is some particular area you are interested in, I will try to come up with something related to that field.

Several people have asked when the final exam will be. It is on at 1pm, Friday, August 6th. It will be based upon all material covered in the course, although of course there will be a greater emphasis on material covered since Hour exam 2. It will be two hours long.

Remember FINAL EXAM THIS FRIDAY - AT 1PM AND NOT AT THE REGULAR CLASS TIME. Thursday's class will be a review session.
