The uniform final for all Math 130 classes will be held Monday Dec. 15
from 1:30 to 3:30 P.M. The location for the final will be announced later;
it will depend on your section,
and it will probably NOT be the usual room for the
lecture or section meeting.
You meet with your Math TA on Monday and with your biology TA on Wednesday.
Unless announced otherwise, you can generally expect a quiz in your math
section and a worksheet in your biology section -- graded events. The Monday
quizzes AND the midterms will very strongly reflect your assigned homework.
1. The lecture on a given day covers material indicated in the box for that
The unexplained numbers refer to sections of the text
("Calculus for the Life Sciences" by Greenwell et al).
2. Some of the schedule
is a bit compressed timewise so that there is some time at the end of the semester
for absorption and review.
3. The schedule above may change a bit due to snow days or other factors.
4. The lecture meetings Nov. 18, 20 and 25 will involve especially challenging
and fundamental material. I strongly recommend that you not include
the Nov. 25 class time in Thanksgiving break travel away.
Monday Sept. 15: last day of schedule adjustment for Fall 2014
(last day to drop a class with no W on the record)
Tuesday Nov. 11: last day to drop a course with a W ("withdrawal")
