Math 31A: Differential and Integral
Calculus |

Office:

The following document contains all crucial information about
this course- it is mandatory for each student in this class to
read it carefully.

Single Variable Calculus,
3rd edition,
by Jon
Rogawski, W. H. Freeman and Company, New York. |

This course meets for lecture
three days a week and for discussion section one day a week (four
times total). I will conduct lectures on Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday. Please feel free to ask questions in lecture, though
preferably none regarding homework problems. Please turn off all cell phones,
laptops, pagers, and other electronic devices before the
lecture.

On Tuesdays or Thursdays your TA will lead a discussion section where he can answer any questions, and homework problems can be discussed. The TAs will also help with those problems during their office hours.

Questions concerning homework problems and the course material should first be addressed to the TAs, and then to me, if further clarification seems necessary. Questions concerning grading should be primarily addressed to me, and not the TAs.

Assigned every week, and
collected during lecture on the dates listed below.

Homework is due no later than 5 minutes after the beginning of the lecture. No late homework will be accepted.

However, your lowest homework score will be dropped when computing your grade. Homework will be returned the following week in discussion section. The problems will range in difficulty from routine to more challenging. You may work together on the exercises, but any graded assignment should represent your own work.

Put the following information in the upper right hand corner of the first page:

Your Name (first and last)

Date, homework assignment number

TAs name, time and number of discussion section (2a-2f)

On each additional page, put your name in the upper right-hand corner. Work single-sided, i.e., write on only one side of each sheet of paper. STAPLE homework that is more than one page long. Remove all perforation before submitting. Write legibly. Label the chapter + section number as well as the problem number (e.g., 2.1 #4).

Homework that fails to meet the above requirements will be marked "Unacceptable'' and returned unread.

During the last 10 minutes of the TA session (starting in the
week of October 5), the TA will give a quiz based on a homework
problem *assigned in the previous week*, which will be
graded and returned to you in the following week.

**No make up quizzes will be given under any circumstances.**

Your lowest quiz score will be dropped when computing your
grade.

There will be two midterm exams,
on Friday, October 16
and Friday, November 13,
each during class time.

There will be a final exam on Thursday, December 10, 3:00 pm-6:00 pm, in Broad 2160E.* I will
hold my regular office hours during Finals Week.*

*Click here
for a collection of sample first midterm exams for Math 31A
and here
for a collection of sample second midterm exams. Click here
for some sample final exams.*

No make up exams will be given under any circumstances.

For each exam, you must bring a picture ID. No books, calculators, scratch paper or notes will be allowed during exams.

Your final grade will be based on the following: 5 % for homework, 5 % for quizzes, 25 % for each midterm, 40 % for final.

Letter grades will be assigned according to the departmental guidelines for Math 31A. Letter grades will only be assigned for your final grade in this course.

Students are expected to be thoroughly familiar with the UCLA policy on academic integrity. UCLA has instituted serious penalties for academic dishonesty. Copying work to be submitted for grade, or allowing your work to be submitted for grade to be copied, is considered academic dishonesty. Here, 'copying' does not only refer to producing verbatim copies, but includes slightly adapting and submitting material originally due to someone else.

All scores and final grades will be available on the MyUCLA gradebook.

# Additional
Assistance

Besides the office hours (by the instructor and the TAs),
additional help is available Monday-Thursday in the Student Math Center
located in MS 3974, where undergraduate math majors as well as
math graduate students will be able to help you.

There will be a final exam on Thursday, December 10, 3:00 pm-6:00 pm, in Broad 2160E.
