- Some older announcements have been moved to the Links section.
- Dean's Hour (1245--1340) is a drop-in AI period. During Exam Week I can only answer specific questions during AI. I cannot re-teach material.
- Here are some optional practice problems
for the TEE: http://www.math.usma.edu/people/Noble/Courses/Spring06/MA104/teepractice.pdf

This is not a practice test. The problems presented do not reflect all the material we have learned and are probably harder than the typical problems we have been studying.

(Note: For problem 7, I did not give a length for the cannon. Assume the cannon's length is negligible OR consider the body of the cannon to sit under a raised floor with only the tip of the barrel visible. In either case, you can assume the cannon fires from position (0,0). )

Availability:

Generally I am NOT available for AI during the following times:

On days our MA104 course meets: from
0800 -- 1200

Tuesdays from 1350 -- 1530

Wednesdays from 1350 -- 1445

I am always available for drop-in AI (no appointment needed) during Dean's Hour each day.Tuesdays from 1350 -- 1530

Wednesdays from 1350 -- 1445

Other than Dean's Hour, you should ask for (call, write, request in person) an appointment rather than just showing up as I often have other meetings and obligations. (In particular, see the Announcements section for specific unavailable times.) Of course, I will try to accomodate your schedule as best I can, so be sure to ask for special consideration in case our schedules appear to be in massive conflict!
