152 Fall 2017: Syllabus, HW

Information

CALCULATOR: A graphing calculator is required for this course. We have traditionally used the TI-83 or 83+ and recommend either of them, but any calculator with equivalent capacities can be used, such as the popular TI-85 or 86. Calculators will not be permitted during exams and quizzes. Formula sheets will not be permitted during exams and quizzes.

CAUTION: Your schedule may vary. There are many sections of Math 152. The order in which topics are covered, the rate at which they are covered, the precise times of examinations, and WebAssign online homework will vary from section to section. For example: The table that you see below has Exam 1 scheduled during the 12th lecture. The lecturer may decide to give the exam during the 11th lecture, instead. The table says that section 7.7 is covered during the 11th lecture. The lecturer may decide to start 7.7 at the end of the 10th lecture, and finish it during the 11th lecture. The table is only an approximate version of the schedule that will actually be followed.

The final exam is different. All sections of Math 152 will take the final exam on Thursday, December 18, 2017 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The final exam locations will be announced in November. Your final exam location may not be the same as the room where you have your lectures. If a student has an emergency or some other compelling reason for postponing the final exam, then that student must contact the lecturer about a makeup exam at a later (not earlier) date. There will also be workshop write-ups, which must be done on paper.

The exact timing and coverage of exams during the semester will be announced by each lecturer. As a student in Math 152, your obligations will be set and announced by your individual instructors, and you will find them out only by attending your own class. Lectures are held twice each week. There is an workshop each week. We DO NOT cancel workshops that have their first meeting before the first lecture.

Your lecturer will announce the grading scheme for your section of Math 152. Your scores on Exam 1, Exam 2, the Final Exam, workshop write-ups, the WebAssign online homework (and possibly quizzes) will be used to determine your course grade.
