11/14/18  You will be allowed one doublesided 8.5x11" letter sized page of handwritten notes as a cheatsheet for Midterm02. 
10/09/18  Homework #5 is updated to version 2 [pdf]. This corrects a misprint on Problem 4 which made the second term look like A(BC)' instead of AB'C'. Also note that you should see slide 154 and T8' to solve Problem 1. 
09/18/18  Homework 3 has been updated. The last two problems have been removed (only 8 total in new version) and will be on Homework 4. 
09/13/18  Be sure to staple your homework and provide neat and clear answers for it to be graded. Additionally, you will lose 5 points if you do not answer the question of how many hours it took you to complete. 
09/04/18  Homework 1 updated to have correct problem references. Also note, you should connect to the eduroam wireless network for best operation (not UNLVSecure or UNLVGuest). This may help with connectivity issues during inclass Kahoots.
