This is the webpage of an older Algebra I course. You may want to visit the HS18 Algebra I course webpage
The new exercises will be posted here on Fridays. We expect you to look at the problems over the weekend and to prepare questions for the exercise classes on Monday/Wednesday.
You are warmly encouraged to hand in your solutions by the following Friday at 12:00 in your assistant's box in HG J 68. Your solutions will be corrected and returned in the following exercise class or, if not collected, returned to the box in HG J 68.
