Homework will be assigned every Tuesday in lecture and posted on Professor Feldman's webpage.  Although it is not collected, it is still very important, both for your grade and for your understanding of the material, that you complete each homework assignment.  There's a saying that goes "Mathematics is not a spectator sport."  You cannot learn the material simply by watching Professor Feldman and I work through it in class; you must also work out problems yourself.  Failure to do so will severely impact your performance on exams.
