plane.

Textbook: Calculus: Early Transcendentals, third edition, by Jon Rogawski and Colin Adams; published

by W. H. Freeman and Company; 2015

Subject Material: We shall cover parts of Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the text.

Lecture: Attending the lecture is a fundamental part of the course; you are responsible for material

presented in the lecture whether or not it is discussed in the textbook. You should expect questions on the

exams that will test your understanding of concepts discussed in the lecture.

Reading: Reading the sections of the textbook corresponding to the assigned homework exercises is

considered part of the homework assignment; you are responsible for material in the assigned reading

whether or not it is discussed in the lecture. It will be expected that you read the assigned material in

advance of each lecture.

Instructional Resources and Tutoring: There are several instructional resources freely available to

Mathematics students. Please see the Mathematics Tutoring page for a listing of these resources and make

use of them.

Electronic Computing Devices: Graphing calculators and computer programs (or online computing

websites such as WolframAlpha) can be very helpful when working through your homework. However,

a calculator/computer should be used as an aid in the learning concepts, not just as a means of

computation. You should use these devices/software when working on math problems at home, but

always keep in mind that you will not be allowed access to any electronic computing devices during

exams. Of course, this also means that you will not be asked to solve problems on exams that require the

aid of an electronic computing device.

Homework: Graded homework will be assigned using WebAssign and will be accessible via TritonEd.

Additional textbook homework exercises are posted on the course textbook homework page with the

same due date as the WebAssign homework. The textbook homework exercises will not be collected and

will not be graded; however, if you seek help from the instructor or TAs, they will often do these

problems.

Online homework will be done through WebAssign via TritonEd.

No homework assignment scores will be dropped at the end of the quarter.

Midterm Exams: There will be two midterm exams given during the quarter. The midterm exams will

be given from 8:00pm - 9:00pm in the evening as listed in the Schedule of Classes. The dates and times

of the exams are also recorded in the course calendar. You may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten

sheet of notes with you to each midterm exam. No calculators (or other devices) will be allowed during

the midterm exams. There will be no makeup exams.There will be no makeup exams.

Final Examination: The ﬁnal examination will be held at the date and time ofﬁcially scheduled in the

Schedule of Classes and also recorded in the course calendar.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have a schedule conﬂict involving the ﬁnal

examination; you should not enroll in this class if you cannot take the ﬁnal examination at its

scheduled time.

You may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten sheet of notes with you to the ﬁnal examination; no

other notes (or books) will be allowed.

No calculators (or other devices) will be allowed during the ﬁnal examination.

Regrade Policy: Your exams will be graded using Gradescope. You will be able to request a regrade via

Gradescope for a speciﬁed window of time. Be sure to make your request within the speciﬁed window of

time; no regrade requests will be accepted after the deadline.

Administrative Deadline: It is your responsibility to check that your exam scores and WebAssign

homework scores are correctly recorded in TritonEd. Contact your TA before the end of the 10before the end of the 10thth

weekweek of the quarter to resolve recording errors.

Questions regarding missing or incorrectly recorded exam scores or WebAssign homework scores

will not be considered after the last day of instruction.

Be sure to check that your exam scores entered in TritonEd are the same as your exam scores

published on Gradescope.

Grading: Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of the term and

will be based on the following scale:

A+ AA- B+ B B- C+ CC-

97 93 90 87 83 80 77 73 70

Note: Your instructor reserves the right to adjust the above scale to be more generous if warranted

by the class's performance.

Your cumulative average will be the best of the following two weighted averages:

20% WebAssign Homework, 20% Midterm Exam I, 20% Midterm Exam II, 40% Final Exam

20% WebAssign Homework, 20% Best Midterm Exam, 60% Final Exam

In addition, you must pass the ﬁnal examination in order to pass the course.you must pass the ﬁnal examination in order to pass the course.

Note: Since there are no makeup exams, if you miss an exam for any reason then your course

grade will be computed with the ﬁnal exam counting 60% of your weighted average.

Academic Integrity: Academic integrity is highly valued at UCSD and academic dishonesty is

considered a serious offense. Students involved in an academic integrity violation will face an

administrative sanction which may include suspension or, in very serious cases, expulsion from the

university. Your integrity has great value: Cultivate and protect your academic integrity. For more about

academic integrity and its value, visit the UCSD Academic Integrity Website.
