The MATERIALS you will need for Schremmer's section of MATH 161, namely:
• The text, Reasonable Algebraic Functions, of which you will need to get a PRINTED COPY.
• The REALITY CHECK for each chapter, of which you will need to get a PRINTED COPY to do before class.
• The CLASSWORK for each chapter---which I will hand out as needed.
• The REVIEW Questions and the REVIEW Discussions for each one of the EXAMS---which are for your information.
• The EXAMS given once upon a time and my solutions for these exams---which are for your information.
• The 161 User Manual to help you get the most out of this course and the 161 Calendar for when to study a Chapter and submit the Homework, for the dates of the REVIEW TESTS and the EXAMS and for the date of the MAKEUPS.
Announcements for MATH 161 are to be found on that page

This is about "How things will go and WHY":

161 Welcome This is the Welcome handout in case you missed it.
161 User Manual
161 Calendar
161 Syllabus Nothing much different from the User Manual but here it is in the format mandated by CCP.

These are couple of things that are relevant to the above:

What previous students have said of Schremmer
Twilight of the Lecture abridged by Schremmer and and the original version.

Here is ALL, which is the whole book (not really) for you to see the references across chapters.

You will need to BRING A PRINTED COPY IN CLASS.

Part I. - TOOLBOX
❖   Chapter 1 - Numbers
❖   Chapter 2 - Functions
❖   Chapter 3 - Graphic Local Analysis
❖   Chapter 4 - From Local To Global
Part II. GAUGE FUNCTIONS - MONOMIAL FUNCTIONS
EXAM 1 covers both Part I. - TOOLBOX and Part II. - MONOMIAL FUNCTIONS.

Part III. - PLAIN POLYNOMIAL FUNCTIONS
EXAM 2 covers Part III. - POLYNOMIAL FUNCTIONS.

Part IV. - RATIONAL FUNCTIONS
EXAM 3 covers Part IV. - RATIONAL FUNCTIONS.

Here are the "HOMEWORKS". You will need to download, print and work on the corresponding HOMEWORK as you study the CHAPTER at home, before class:

❖   Homework 1 - Numbers
❖   Homework 2 - Functions
❖   Reality Check 3 - Graphic Local Analysis
❖   Reality Check 4 - From Local To Global
❖   Reality Check 5 - Regular Monomial Functions - Local Analysis
❖   Reality Check 6 - Regular Monomial Functions - Global Analysis
❖   Reality Check 7 - Exceptional Monomial Functions

❖   Reality Check 8 - Prelude To Polynomial Functions
❖   Reality Check 9 - Affine Functions: Local Analysis
❖   Reality Check 10 - Affine Functions: Global Analysis
❖   Reality Check 11 - Quadratic Functions: Local Analysis
❖   Reality Check 12 - Quadratic Functions: Global Analysis
❖   Reality Check 13 - Cubic Functions: Local Analysis
❖   Reality Check 14 - Cubic Functions: Global Analysis

❖   Reality Check 15 - Rational Degree & Algebra Review.
❖   Reality Check 16 - Rational Functions: Local Analysis near Infinity.
❖   Reality Check 17 - Rational Functions: Local Analysis near x0.
❖   Reality Check 18 - Rational Functions: Global Analysis.

And here are HOMEWORK Discussions (inasmuch as I did my homework.)

Here is QUIZ 12
❖   Quiz 12 - Quadratic Functions - Global Analysis
and here is the DISCUSSION for Quiz 12
❖   Quiz 12 Discussion - Quadratic Functions - Global Analysis

Here are the CLASSWORK handouts.

And here are CLASSWORK Discussions (inasmuch as I did my homework.)
❖   Classwork 9 Discussion - Affine Functions - Local Analysis

Here are the REVIEW materials for each one of the three EXAMS:

To show you how close the EXAMS are to the Reviews, here are past exams :
And here are:
❖   My solutions for EXAM I (Spring 2014).
❖   My solutions for EXAM I (Spring 2017)
❖   My solutions for EXAM II (Spring 2013).
❖   My solutions for EXAM II (Fall 2016).
❖   My solutions for EXAM III (Spring 2013). (There is a typo in III-1: We localize near ∞, not near +1)
