Week 1 discussion

By the due date assigned, submit your answers to the Discussion Area.

For each week’s assignment, find your assigned letter and complete the problems associated with that letter. If your instructor has not assigned you a letter, please use the first letter of your last name. Please post both of the problems assigned to you.

Post responses to at least two other students on two separate days of the week. You can:

Ask a question about your classmate’s solution

Offer help when you see an error

Seek help in completing your own problems

Remember that non-substantive posts such as “Good job!” will not count toward your participation score.

By the end of the week, please review and comment on the answers provided by at least two of your peers.

Instructions:

? In the Course Home announcement area there should be a listing with your name and

letter assigned for the discussion questions. If there is not such a list, then find the first

letter of your last name below, and complete the two discussion problems associated

with this letter.

? Please show all of the steps and processes you used to solve each of your problems.

? Remember to do both of the problems assigned and to respond to two of your

classmates’ solutions.

? Please try to respond to two of your classmates who have had very different

problems than yours assigned to them. You should receive more credit for doing

so.

? In responding to the postings of at least two of your classmates, you can

Remember that non-substantive posts such as “Good job!” will not count toward your

participation score. Again, try to respond to at least two classmates who have problems

assigned that are quite different from yours.
