Information

Grading:

Webwork (10%), Quizzes (10%), Two exams (20% each), Common Final (40%)

Webwork:

The first assignment will be posted during week 2. From on campus, you can use this

address https://homework.ps.uci.edu/webwork/

If you are having trouble logging in, please install the VPN software from

http://www.oit.uci.edu/vpn/ and access Webwork through this.

Quizzes:

Quizzes will be given each week in section. There are no make-up quizzes, but your

lowest two scores will be dropped.

Exams:

Exams are given in class on Monday, Oct. 22nd, and Wednesday, Nov. 14th. You

must bring a photo ID to the exams. There are no make-up exams.

Final:

The common final for all 2A students is on Sat, Dec 8, 1:30-3:30pm. The location is

TBA.

Suggested Homework:

In order to do well on the exams and final, I strongly recommend that you create a

study group to work together on the suggested homework from the textbook. The

suggested homework problems can be found in the class files section below.

Textbook:

Stewart, Calculus: Early Transcendentals, 8th Edition or Single Variable Calculus:

Early transcendentals, 8th Edition or UCI Custom Edition, 8th Edition.

Add/Drop Policy:

All add/drop/change requests can be done on-line for the first 2 weeks of classes via

WebReg.

Neither the instructors nor the department office can help students get into a class

which is full or waitlisted, or switch to a different discussion. All the enrollment,

including waitlist, is done electronically. The department does not sign add/drop cards

at any time.

No adding courses is allowed after week 2. No exception.

Dropping or changing grade option after week 2 is extremely difficult. Students submit

an enrollment exception via Student Access. Dean’s approval is required. (It is granted

only in case of a SERIOUS DOCUMENTED EMERGENCY/)

Make-up Final Exam Policy:

It is expected that students will make every effort to take their final exam at the

scheduled time. However, requests for make-up final exams will be considered under

the following guidelines:

· A student will be granted a make-up if the Saturday final exam time violates the

student’s religious creed.

· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the course

facilitator if the exam time would result in loss of wages constituting financial hardship,

need for child care resulting in financial hardship, inability to procure transportation or

loss of employment.

· A student may be granted a make-up exam at the discretion of the course

facilitator if there is a verifiable emergency, which prevents the student from taking the

final examination at the scheduled time. Such emergencies include, but are not limited

to, serious illness, death of immediate family member, or serious accident.

· A student will be granted a make-up if they are enrolled in Math 2B at the same

time they are re-taking Math 2A for a higher grade.

· During Fall, Winter and Spring, students registered with the Disability Services

Center (DSC) will be taking the exam at DSC on Saturday at the same time of the

regular exam. During the Summer, DSC students will have to request a make-up

exam. (All such requests will be approved.)

In all cases, the petition for make-up final exam must be presented with verifiable

evidence. Vacation plans will not constitute a legitimate excuse.
