The MATERIALS you will need for Schremmer's section of MATH 161, namely: can all be freely downloaded from this page.
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.


You can PRINT the TEXT yourself by downloading the files below.
Here is ALL, which is the whole book (not really) for you to see the references across chapters.

You can download the CHAPTERS individually:
You will need to BRING A PRINTED COPY IN CLASS.
