READING AND STUDY GUIDE
The Course Reader
Table of Contents
For ease of reference, here is the table of contents of the Course Reader that has been assembled for the course and can be purchased from Wheelock Books.
Reading/Math Homework Schedule
You should keep up to date in your readings by following the week-by-week schedule given here. The best place to start is with the manuscript A Matter of Time by Lahr & Pastor. It discusses and refers to selections from the course reader that you then can look up.
Outlines of Humanities Class Lectures
Here are the outlines of the lectures on the humanities sections of the textbook:
Solutions of Math Problems
Here are step-by-step solutions of the math problems that are given as exercises in each unit of the textbook manuscript A Matter of Time by Lahr & Pastor. They were worked out in great detail by Bisserka Williams of the Math Department. Because the book has been modified a bit since then, the page references may not be correct, or some of the problems may be in a different order; but this should not cause difficulty. Try the exercises first on your own, then check your answers against the solutions when they are posted here. If you are having trouble, meet with the graduate TA for the course, Marty Malandro. He will hold problem sessions Tuesdays 12-1 and Thursdays 2-3 in his office, 1-B in the basement of Bradley.

Here we will post additional information about the exams.
- Hour Exams 1 and 2: In the exam, you may use a hand-written 3x5 note card for math formulas, but you may not use notes of any other kind.
- Final Exam: a culminating interdisciplinary paper
- In seven to ten pages (plus end-notes on a separate page), with one-inch margins, and in 12-point Times font, double-spaced, write a paper on one of the topics in the "Final Exam" handout. Hand in your paper by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 12, the first day of final exams. Take it to Dwight Lahr's office, 410 Bradley. Be sure to attach your draft (marked up by Jane Whittington).
