Reading Assignments: The contents section of the overview page makes clear that we will be reading Chapters 1-5, 7-10, and 12. Chapters 6 and 11 are highly recommended for students who wish to obtain the maximum benefit from this course.
Weekly Homework Assignments: The contents section of the overview page also indicates the exercises for each chapter. The answers for these exercises will be posted for you to compare with your answers, but you should discipline yourself not to look at the answers until after you have finished each exercise. Otherwise you will get a false sense of confidence that will most likely be unrealistic for exam expectations. In some cases I will be asking each student to post an answer to some exercises as part of class discussion using a bulletin board program. You may also e-mail me your questions related to your answers to exercises privately for feedback. Please feel free to e-mail me at any time if you have questions at:
email@example.com (primary e-mail address for our course)
Please note that we will be using the UH
Laulima gateway program for our course. Once registered for the

use your UH e-mail account for this course.
Class Discussions: You should follow the schedule and participate regularly in the class discussion forums which will occur online using a Laulima bulletin board program. I will be posting general questions for each discussion forum. In most forums two posts will be required. At least one of your comments must be a direct response to my question, but any others can be questions or responses to another student's comment. As noted above, sometimes I will be asking each of you to post an answer to a selected exercise. Other than e-mail exchanges and reading the textbook, Laulima class discussions via the bulletin board program are the primary method we will be using to interact with each other. The discussions are a very important part of the course.
Exams: The items on the midterm and final exam will not be a
surprise for you. Many of the exercise items at the back of each
chapter are all from previous exams. I will let you know which
So, although the content will be of course different, the type of
question or problem will be clear. These exams will be given on
or at an approved proctored site.
