### Access your Grades

Please check your grades weekly on canvas. I will try to keep them up to date every week so you know which badges you have earned. Please check them for correctness and alert me to any errors. It is quite a complicated administrative task.

### General Math Resources

Note: the internet can in fact do your homework for you in many cases. So can your friends, your mother, and your tutor. That’s not the point. Study (and drink) responsibly.

**Study Math by Speaking It****Tips on Doing Homework****Tips on Reading your Textbook**- Dr. Math – Question answer service (by ‘Math Doctors’). Use the search box first; there’s a 99% chance someone has asked your question before.
- Mathematics at StackExchange – Question answer service (by the ‘hive mind’). Use the search box first; there’s a 98% chance someone has asked your question before.
- Math Forum Digital Library – Catalogue of web resources.

### CU Resources

- The
**Undergraduate Mathematics Resource Center**is in Math 175 (first floor of math building).**Although tutors do not serve this course**, an area has been set up where you can meet your peers to work together. - A tutor list is available.
