For those students who are having trouble registering for their course in Canvas, please contact


Please go to Canvas and NOT MyMathLab to register for your MyMathLab course. You do not need to know the number of the course, it should be there as part of your Canvas course. Here is the info sheet on how to do this.

4. Lecture notes and Lecture Schedule

The rough lecture schedule is available inside the full syllabus. The typed notes from which I prepare lectures will be inserted below, chapter by chapter, in the order that they will be covered. They are NOT a replacement for the textbook. The handwritten lectures will be uploaded in the folder "Handwritten lectures" in "Files" in Canvas.

Chapter 12
Chapter 13
Chapter 14
Chapter 15

5. Worksheets for Studios
These will be posted in advance of the recitations, in the folder "Worksheets" in "Files" in Canvas. Solutions will NOT be posted or circulated.

6. Tests and Grading Policy

Tentative dates of tests:
Test 1: Friday September 17
Test 2: Friday October 15
Test 3: Friday November 12

Makeup tests will only be given when students have valid medical certificates or letters of attendance for approved student events.

The final exam is on Friday December 10, 11:20am - 2:10 pm. Full information on how the tests and final exam will be conducted will be provided in the information sheets in the folder "Tests" in "Files" in Canvas.

The items are weighted as follows:
MyLab Homework: 15%
Gradescope quizzes: 10%
Midterm tests: 50% (The lowest of the three tests counts 10% and the remaining two bests tests count 20% each)
Final exam: 25%
No extra credit.

A final percent of 90+, 80+, 70+, 60+ guarantees a grade of respectively A, B, C, D respectively, though there will be a curve on the final percentage that could yield e.g. an A for a lower grade.
All grades will be posted on Canvas.
