Important Information

25% of your grade in 1A is based on quizzes, which take place on Wednesdays. Homework is due on Mondays but will not be graded; however, it will be helpful in studying for the quizzes. Your lowest quiz grade will be dropped at the end of the semester. You can make up one quiz, and only one, with a valid excuse (e.g. medical emergency).

Most questions should be directed to Piazza and not to my email. If you have a question, it's likely that other students have similar questions, so it saves time to answer questions all at once on Piazza rather than separately in private emails. Piazza also supports LaTeX, which makes it convenient to typeset mathematics there. Email should be reserved for things like scheduling time to meet if you can't make office hours.

For administrative / enrollment issues, e.g. changing sections, talk to Thomas Brown in 965 Evans.
