Daily Review Assignments

The purpose of daily review assignments is to provide timely review and feedback on the basic course concepts and computational mechanics covered each day in class.  This structured regular review facilitates mastery of course material.  Review assignments are due at the beginning of the following class.  They are checked simply for reasonable effort, not accuracy. The following grade codes are used:

✔ — On time and reasonably complete. Receives full credit.
L — Reasonably complete, but late. Receives half credit.
☹ — Insufficiently complete, but on time. Receives half credit.
X — Insufficiently complete and late. Receives no credit.

Daily review assignments are distributed in class.  They are also available from the links below. (Many of the review assignment webpages have links to more detailed solutions, in case you run into difficulty while working on them.)
