(Oct. 10) I have finished grading Workshop #5. Here is a write-up that I did for Problem #5. I will post some of the "okay to post" solutions after I have scanned them.
Here are the sample solutions: Solution 1 and Solution 2. Please thank the people who write "okay to post."

(Oct. 9) We reviewed for the midterm. There will be no workshop write-up due next week, but there is homework that is due.

(Oct. 6) I have completed grading Quiz #2. Here is a set of solutions. Due to my unfortunate mistakes in writing the first problem on the board, I did not grade the first problem and instead gave everyone 5 points.

(Oct. 2) We worked on Workshop #5 problems 5, 3, and 4. Workshop #5 problem 5 should be written up and submitted at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Oct. 9. Here is a hint on the setup for problem 5.
Next week, the entire period will be devoted to review for the midterm exam that is Thurs, Oct. 10. Most of the time will be spent reviewing the practice exam given out by Prof. O'Nan.

(Sept. 30) I have completed grading Quiz #1. Here is a set of solutions.

(Sept. 25) We worked on Workshop #4 problems 5, 3, and 6. Workshop #4 problem 3 should be written up and submitted at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Sept. 25. We will also have a quiz next week on Wed, Oct. 2, at the beginning of the recitation. The quiz will be short (5-10 minutes) and have 1-2 questions. The quiz will cover the material up to section 7.8. No calculators, formula sheets, books, or other notes will be permitted during the quiz.
Here is a complete write-up of Workshop #3 problem 8.
As I announced in class, here is information on tutoring at the Kreeger Learning Center

(Sept. 24) I will return Workshop #2 tomorrow morning. Here are some sample solutions by students in the class who were gracious enough to give permission to post their write-ups: Solution 1, Solution 2, and Solution 3. Although these write-ups are not necessarily perfect, they are very good examples of workshop write-ups.

(Sept. 18) We worked on Workshop #3 problems 1, 3, 8, and 4. Workshop #3 problem 8 should be written up and submitted at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Sept. 25. Here is a hint on problem 8.
We will also have a quiz next week on Wed, Sept. 25, at the beginning of the recitation. The quiz will be short (5-10 minutes) and have 1-2 questions. The quiz will cover the material up to and including Thursday, Sept. 19's lecture. No calculators, formula sheets, books, or other notes will be permitted during the quiz.

(Sept. 13) I have graded the Workshop #1 write-ups that were submitted on Wednesday and posted them outside of my door. You may retrieve your write-up, redo it after considering any comments that I made, and resubmit it at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Sept. 18. I will grade your write-up again, and the new grade will replace your original grade. Remember that write-ups should clearly present in proper English your solution to the workshop problems. Explain what you are doing and why. The workshop should be self-contained and clear enough that you could give the write-up to another Calculus II student at a different school, and they could understand everything that you are doing. This includes, for instance, stating the problem at the beginning of the write-up, and then making sure that your solution answers this question.

(Sept. 11) We worked on Workshop #2 problems 1, 5, 7, and 8 during workshop. Workshop #2 problem 5 should be written up and submitted at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Sept. 18.

(Sept. 4) We worked on Workshop #1 problems 1, 2, 5, and 6 during workshop. Workshop #1 problems 2b and 6 should be written up and submitted at the beginning of recitation on Wed, Sept. 11.

Grading Policy for Workshops:
    Workshops are an innovative teaching technique at Rutgers that combines small group work and well-written write-ups to develop mathematical thinking. They are similar to the labs that are conducted in the physical sciences. At the end of each recitation, one or two workshop problems will be chosen to be written up and submitted the following week. Write-ups are intended to help students develop precision and their ability to communicate mathematics. A sample write-up can be found on the Math 152 homepage. Eva Curry's webpage also has useful advice on workshop writeups.
    Each workshop write-up will be graded out of 10 points. Roughly 30% will be for exposition (including clarity, grammar, and neatness), and the remainder will be for mathematical correctness. Group work is encouraged for working on the problems; however, each student should individually write-up his or her solution. Each write-up is due at the beginning of recitation of the following week. I will also accept write-ups before then. No late write-ups will be accepted.
