To help you prepare for the lecture (and exams), I have created a set of worksheets (below) that contain questions/problems that pertain to each lecture. You are expected to complete each worksheet prior to the corresponding lecture and turn it in on the same day that lecture is presented. Keys to worksheets will be posted after the lecture. Worksheets are worth 2 pts each and also contribute to your participation score. Worksheets will be returned to you the following week. No late worksheets will be accepted!
The worksheets are intended to be a learning tool to reinforce your understanding of key concepts from the readings and lecture and help you prepare for the exams. Successful completion of the worksheets will contribute to your overall participation score for the lecture. Furthermore, I draw at least one exam question for each exam directly from the worksheets. Therefore, completing all of the worksheets will help you prepare for the lecture exams. If you wish to do well in this course, you must complete the worksheets.
