Unless announced otherwise, your Monday quiz questions will be
VERY similar to, or equal to, assigned homework problems for
the sections listed in the schedule of work above for the
previous week. (Either your TA or I might email otherwise.)
Homework will not be collected.
FIRST DAY OF CLASS QUIZ:
The first day of class is Monday Jan. 26. There will be a quiz
(graded for credit, as usual)
that day on the review material from sections
R.1, R.2, R.3, R.4 and R.6. So please
be prepared for that.
The uniform final for all Math 130 classes will be held Thursday May 14
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 life sciences TA on Wednesday.
Unless announced otherwise by email, 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.
More on the schedule.
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, 2nd edition).
2. The schedule of lecture activity above is a bit approximate in that lecture activity on a section may bleed into adjoining lectures. Also, lecture material is not quite entirely contained in the text.
3. The schedule above may change due to snow days or other factors. In that case I'll email the class and post an updated schedule.
Friday Feb. 6: last day of schedule adjustment for Spring 2015
(last day to drop a class with no W on the record)
Monday April 13: last day to drop a course with a W ("withdrawal")
