1. Even though the course is graded S/NC, do not be tempted to make a minimally passing effort in Math 0090. Like all mathematics courses, the material builds on the previous work. The small thing that you failed to understand in Week 3, may have repercussions in your performance throughout the course. It is really important not to fall behind. This cannot be overemphasized.
2. Math 0090 moves quickly through a lot of material  much more quickly than your high school math classes. At the risk of being repetitive, let me advise you once again not to fall behind!
3.Read the textbook. In Math 0090, you will be required to understand the ideas and apply them in a variety of settings. This course is not just about learning problem solving techniques. The way to learn new ideas is to read and think about them, and then to attempt to solve the problems. If you like to work with others on homework, be sure that you also work alone. Students who never solve problems totally on their own are often surprised by their inability to solve problems during the exams.
4. Attendance in recitation sections is *required* because your
grade depends on your quiz scores. Attendance in lectures is
not required, it is voluntary. Let me stress that there is a
strong correlation between success in Math 0090 and regular
attendance at the lectures. If you choose to attend the
lecture, be sure to:
Arrive on time. Late arrivals are distracting and
even irritating to both students and the instructor.
Leave the classroom only when the lecture is finished.
Again, early departures are both distracting and impolite.
Be prepared to participate in class with, at least, your
full attention, and hopefully, your questions and participation
in occasional brief class discussions.
5. Here is an algebra review assignment
from the appendix in your book which you should complete
as soon as possible (but don't turn in):
page A9: #13,29,53
page A15 #3,7,20,21
page A23 #4,17,33
page A33 19,59,60
