Also, for the Math 112 BSE, there is a handout below on this page "How Quickly Things Go To Zero," which will be helpful on the series convergence problems.

- The BSE policy,

- Information about the content of the exams,
- Sample exams,
- Lists of problems in the book.

Quantitative Skills Center (QSC): The math QSC meets in Goodrich 101, Sun - Thurs, 7 - 11 p.m.

Help with Mathematica: See the folder N:\Math\Mathematica on the Caleb drive on the College network.

Extra Credit Offer:If you find an error in any handout, let me know. If you are the first to report it, you will get some extra credit on quizzes. This includes errors in spelling and grammar, but mathematical errors will be worth more.
