There will be ten homework assignments, collected at the beginning of your discussion each Tuesday beginning 10 October (except for HW 9 and HW 10, which will both be due in class Friday 8 December).
No late homework will be accepted. However, the lowest two homework scores will be dropped.
Feel free to work in groups on the homework assignments, but each person should write up their solutions individually. Write your collaborators' names at the top of each homework assignment. Issues with grading of homework must be addressed to your TA within two weeks of the assignment due date.
Here are your assignments:
There will be two in-class midterms on the following dates:
Friday, 20 October 2017
Wednesday, 15 November 2017
The final exam will be held:
Wednesday, 13 December 2017 8:00 — 11:00 AM [Location TBA]
There will be two parts, equally weighted: Part I is Midterm 3 (so it will only cover the material after Midterm 2) and Part II will come from the following handout:
Math 131A Big Ideas
You must bring your student ID to every exam, including the final exam. Exams are closed book and closed notes. No calculators are allowed. Issues related to grading of exams must be addressed in writing to Nick within two weeks of the exam date. After that time no regrades will be allowed.
There will be no makeup exams, no matter the excuse [see Grades below]. You must take the final exam to receive a passing grade.
I will compute your final score by taking the maximum of the following scores:
10% Best 8 Homeworks + 25% Exam 1 + 25% Exam 2 + 40% Final
10% Best 8 Homeworks + 30% Best Exam + 60% Final
I will then determine letter grade cutoffs based on what UCLA suggests for Math 131A.
Grades will be available online via myUCLA.
You are expected to come to every lecture and every discussion section on time and stay until the end of class. If an illness or other emergency prevents you from attending, then you should get notes from a classmate and check the course home page and/or the piazza home page for announcements and assignments.
The TA and I will ignore emails of the form "I wasn't in class today, did I miss anything?"

Academic Integrity
Cheating on Exams is not only not allowed, but it is also stupid. If you are caught cheating on an exam, there will be serious consequences which could extend further than this course.
