2010/9/26 Added a study guide in the section “Some advises about how to do well in this class”.

2010/9/3 I’m very sorry to tell you that since there’s some conflicts between the TA session assignment and the TAs’ graduate courses, the TA coordinator has to swap sections among Prof. Brown’s TAs. That is, I’m not teaching section 426 and 427 anymore, and I’m really sorry about that!

Homework and quizzes policy

We will have homework handed in on every Tuesday. Basically, the homework handed in every Tuesday is the homework of the sections covered before last week. You can also check out the due days on the above section of this website.

There will be a 20 minutes quiz on every Thursday. Basically, the quizzes on every Thursday cover the materials which was taught in that Monday or before.

Notes, textbooks or calculators will NOT be allowed in the quizzes unless otherwise indicated.

 

Grading policy

Midterm Exam I

25%

Midterm Exam II

25%

Final Exam

35%

Homework

5%

Quizzes

10%

Homework will be graded in two parts. First, I’ll pick 2 questions, and it will be one point each. Second, there will be three points for completion.

You will get zero point if you hand in your homework later than the end of the discussion session on every Tuesday. None of the homework score will be discarded.

Each quizzes will be composed by two to three basic questions (10 points total) and one bonus question (1 point). So there is a total 11 points for each tests. If you get more than 10 points in some test, the score can “cover” the losses of scores in other quizzes. However, the average points you will get on the quizzes will not exceed 10.

Your lowest quiz score will be discarded, and there is no make-up quizzes.

There will be no attendance points. However, in order to hand in your homework and take quizzes in time, you will want to be present in the sessions.

 

Classroom policy

You don’t have to bring your textbook to the discussion sessions. However, if you want to ask some questions related to your textbook, you could either bring your textbook along or just copy the question to some piece of paper as a reminder.

You are free to do anything in the classroom as long as you do not distract the teaching assistant or other students. Students who are talking, reading newspapers or magazines, playing with cellphones, laptops or ipods, etc… will be considered violating the previous rule and be asked to leave the classroom.

 

Academic misconduct policy

If not otherwise indicated, all the works submitted under a student’s name should be solely the work of that student and be done in the manner indicated. During the quizzes, you’re not allowed to use your notes, read textbook, use calculators or talk to anyone except your proctor, unless otherwise indicated. When doing your homework, you’re free and encouraged to discuss with each other, but you should only change ideas or hints, not virtually copying or “revising” other’s homework.

The penalties of academic misconduct can include but not limited to reduction in grades or removal from the course. For more information, please refer to http://students.wisc.edu/saja/index.html.

 

Some advises about how to do well in this class

-          There is a study guide on math studying by Christelle Vincent.

-          Study hard – normally, the courses in university are harder, if not much more harder, than the courses in high school.

-          Take notes during the classes, and review them after classes.

-          Ask questions immediately if something is unclear for you during the class.

-          Read the textbook and do the homework as well as additional problems which is not assigned as homework.

-          Practice past exams as you go on.

-          Come to office hours if you have any questions.

-          If necessary, find other resources besides TA and professor (Math lab, mathematics tutorial program, GUTS, 1-1 tutors, etc…)
