The official prerequisite is Math 171.
See the official syllabus.
The textbooks for the class are
Each week I will assign homework from the textbooks and post it here (above). Each following Tuesday (starting in the second week of class), your TA will give a 20 min quiz during your discussion section, consisting of a few questions from or related to the previous few homeworks. This will make up part of your grade, as described below. The TA for your section might decide to collect some homework or have some additional methods of assessment, at their discretion.
Notes, textbooks, or calculators will not be allowed in the quizzes. At least one of your lowest quiz scores will be discarded, and there will be no make-up quizzes.
Even if it is not collected, you should do all of the homework if you want a chance to do well in the class.

There will be two midterm exams. Each of the two midterm exams is worth 20 percent, for a total of 40 percent of the final grade. The final exam will count for 40 percent. The remaining 20 percent is a Discussion Section grade allocated by your TA who will base it on homework, quizzes, participation, attendance, and effort. (The Discussion Section grade will be adjusted to account for variations among the TAs.)
Midterm Exam I | 20% | ( | |
Midterm Exam II | 20% | ( | |
Final Exam | 40% | (Monday May 11, 2009 at 10:05 A.M.) | |
Discussion section grade | 20% |
Calculators, notes, and textbooks are not allowed in exams or quizzes. The intelligent use of calculators outside of exam rooms is however encouraged.
There are many ways to get help with math. In addition, following these guidelines is a recipe for (but not a guarantee of) success:
