Handout for Lecture 3.

Handout for Lecture 4.

Single Variable Calculus, 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, pagers, and other electronic devices before
the lecture.

On Tuesdays or Thursdays your TA will lead a discussion section where he or she 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.

There will be a problem set assigned in lecture on Friday every
week, and collected during lecture the following Friday. Homework
is due no later than 5 minutes after the beginning of lecture on each
Friday.

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 (5a-5f resp. 6a-6f)

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., 7.2 #2).

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

There will be two midterm
examinations, on Wednesday,
October 28 and Wednesday,
November 18, each at 5:30 pm-6:30 pm, in Haines 39 (Lecture 3) and Lakretz 110 (Lecture 4).
There will be a final exam on Friday,
December
11, 8:00 am-11:00 am in 147
Dodd Hall (Lecture 3) respectively Thursday, December 10, 11:30
am-2:30 pm in MS 4000A (Lecture 4).

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: 10 % for homework, 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.

Midterm 1 will cover all sections from 2.1 up to and including 4.4 which were discussed in class. Midterm 2 will cover all sections from 4.6 up to and including 5.4 which were discussed in class. The final exam will be cumulative.

# Additional Assistance

Besides the office hours (by the instructor and the TAs),
additional help is available Monday-Thursday, 9:00
am-3:00 pm in the Student
Math
