Grades

Your grade will consist of: "Participation" means that your presence at the quiz section will be checked thrice during the quarter. Twice - on the quiz days (you submit me your quiz, so I will know who is present), and once in the following way: I will read a list of students in Math 126 E and mark whether they are present or not. The day of this check will be selected randomly and not announced in advance.

Homework

Homework will be assigned and collected via Webassign

Course Calendar: Due Dates for Homework

No late homework will be accepted under any reason


How to Use Webassign

In order to access and submit your homework for grading, you will use Webassign. You will need a "Webassign access code" which you can purchase with or without the text at the University Bookstore or at webassign.net.

Here is a description of how to get registered on Webassign and begin accessing the homework.

    • Taylor series (sections 4-5)


Math Study Center

The Math Study Center (located in Communication B-014) is a great place for students to work on math, WHETHER OR NOT THEY NEED HELP. We are not a tutoring center in the traditional sense. We provide a comfortable place and a supportive atmosphere for students to come together and study, in groups or individually.

We have on staff a number of tutors (both graduate student TA's and advanced undergraduates) who will sit down with students and answer questions to help them get unstuck. We do not provide long blocks of uninterrupted one-on-one tutoring. Textbooks, calculators and other study materials are available to be checked out for in-room use.

We are located in the basement of the Communications Building, room B-014. Summer Hours: Monday - Thursday: 10:50am - 5:40pm.
