**If you bought Edition 6, you can still use it.
On this webpage, modifications are in red. For example, Chapter 9 of the seventh
edition is Chapter 8 of the sixth edition. Section 1.3 of the seventh edition,
is section 1.2 in the sixth edition. And instead of problem 1.1, problem 17, do
problem 13 etc. My notes assume that you are using the seventh edition.

**For turning in Homework, you need to get the software program Scientific Notebook. **

All homework has to be submitted by e-mail to

klaus@math.uh.edu

as a Scientific Notebook (SN) attachment. For details concerning SN, scroll further down.

Your e-mail message should have the subject field completed like

Subject: Your name, HW # , for example

Subject: John Smith , HW 1

and file name should be

However, if possible you should take tests on campus. Online graduate courses are not meant to save you time and gasoline. Living in nearby cities, like Katy, Humble, Sugarland or the Woodlands should not be a reason to take tests off campus. If you have to take the tests off campus, then certain WebCT Testing Center Policies must be obeyed:

1. Introduce yourself to the proctor and be prepared to show a valid photo id.

2. Once you have started a test, you cannot leave the testing room for any reason. If you decide to leave the testing room, you have to turn in your test, and the proctor should not allow you to continue the test.

3. You should take a test at the scheduled day. If this is impossible, then you have to ask me for permission to take it a couple of days earlier or later.

A student who wishes to take a test off campus has to give me notice at least one week ahead.

**Homework has to be submitted by the deadline. I
do not accept late homework. Always submit what you got, and on time.
If you have problems, feel free to contact me by e-mail. **

**Organization of the course: **You will receive on a regular basis
reading assignments together with homework. For most sections of the book,
I have added some comments.

Some of my comments are meant to add a graduate course perspective but also to help you with the reading. All homework has to be submitted by e-mail.

**Homework has to be submitted by e-mail as a SNB file. **

**Scientific Notebook (SNB): **This program is available for $99
through MacKichan Software at
http://www.mackichan.com/

*Comments on Scientific Notebook:*

SN is a rather simple word processor meant for text entry together with math. Files are saved in LaTeX but for SN you don't need to know any LaTeX. With SN you can also perform all sorts of mathematical calculations through MuPad. This makes SN a reasonable buy at the price of a graphics calculator.

**Why don't we use MS Word with the Equation Editor? **Because this is an awful combination and sooner or later I would be forced to accept handwritten HW. It just would take you too long to get any math typed. And there are many other reasons why we should not use Word for documents that contain mathematical formulas.

**Can I use SN for my other math courses? **Yes. SN provides you with decent looking hard copies. But even if your instructor accepts HW as e-mail attachments, SN files can be opened by LaTeX which is available to every faculty.

**Can I save SNB documents as PDF files? **Yes, but only
if you have the Adobe Acrobat , or equivalent. Just choose "Print" and then
ADOBE PDF. UH Students can buy the Adobe Acrobat Professional for $99 at
the Cougar Byte store. There are also free PDF file converters available. Like
the PDF Creator which is used by the UH Math department.
