Due to the ongoing pandemic, all courses at Whitman College have gone online as of
March 30th. Therefore, some changes to the course are necessary. I will keep this
page updated for course content, course video links and homework.
You should try all homework problems, but only turn in the solutions for those
marked with an asterisk. For each section, you'll find videos describing what is
in those sections, and after each video, there is a written summary from that video (in
case you want to recall what is on those videos). Following videos and notes, in
each section below is a listing of the homework and when it is due. Of course, if
you ever have any questions, please send me an email.
Homework: 7.6: 1(a) and solve the problem using a spreadsheet. Also, #2, but just turn in the transportation table (with just costs, no solution). For more that won't be due, look at 3, 4. Problems due next Tuesday.
(Thu, Apr 30) Homework from 7.5 due today.
(Fri, May 1) Catch up day. Nothing new is due.
(Mon, May 4) Networks and Graphs (8.1-8.2). Section 8.1 is very short, so we're
doing 8.1 and 8.2 together.
Homework- Section 8.3: 4, 5, 7, 8, 9. Turn in #8-9 before Friday evening (change to the usual deadlines)
(Thu, May 7) Homework from 8.2 due today.
(Fri, May 8) Catch up day- do the homework from 8.3!
(Mon, May 11) Review day - Discuss final exam. I'll try to have the final exam
ready by Monday, but I'll give you several days to work on it, and it will be due by 11:59PM on saturday, May 16th.
Midterm 2. Due Saturday, Apr 18, 11:59PM. Updated Apr 14- 3(b)(i) should be b_2 rather than b_3.
Final Exam. Due Saturday, May 16th, 11:59PM. Updated
May 14 to include some clarification on Problem 2.
How Will I Upload Materials to Canvas?
There are several apps for cell phones to convert images of your work to PDF,
which you can then upload to Canvas. Below, Prof. Schueller demonstrates one
such app, Adobe Scan. Unfortunately, you will be asked to set up an account, but otherwise
it seems like a good app (if you want to use other apps, that's fine, too- but please
upload files as PDF).
