Course Policies

Unlike in other discussion sections, we meet five hours a week, including on Fridays (the other sections are two hours per week, on Mondays and Wednesdays). Attendance in this section is required. As college students, you should enroll in classes only because you want to take them; if you don't want to come to five hours of discussion section per week, that's perfectly appropriate: enroll in a different discussion section. If you do attend this section, you'll most likely learn a lot more than you would in any other.

Homework, assigned by Zvezda each week and announced at, is due in section each Wednesday, and will be graded by Alberto, on a mix of completeness and correctness (this is also different from the other discussion sections, which do not have UGAs and hence homework is not turned in). We will have quizzes every Wednesday that count towards your grade, and occasional pop quizzes on other days.

Handouts and Quizzes

Everything I give out in class will be posted here, all as PDFs. If you are on a Mac, these should open automatically; Windows users may need to download Adobe Reader if it is not already installed.

Review materials: I have copied the end-of-chapter True/False quizzes from Stewart's Calculus. Chapter 1. Chapter 2. Chapter 3. Chapter 4. Chapter 5.
