Enrollment Questions

If you want to switch to another section, you have to do it yourself on TeleBears. During the first week of classes you should register with your GSI, otherwise your place in the section will be cancelled.

Grading Policy

The grade for the course will be computed according to the following proportions: Sections vary by the number and by the quality of students. If some sections will have better average grades for quizzes this should not be surprising. Quizzes will have approximately the same difficulty level in all sections and the grading policy will be uniform.

Final

Do not take this course if you have a conflict in the final exam schedule (check the exam group numbers of your courses in the Schedule of Classes, Spring 2014). This course is in exam group 4 . The final exam date and time: Monday, May 12, 7-10pm

Incompletes

Official University policy states that an incomplete can be given only for valid medical excuses with a doctor's certificate and only if, at the point the grade is given, the student has a passing grade (a C or better). If you are behind in the course, an incomplete is not an option!

Textbook

The official textbook is Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals 7E for UC Berkeley by James Stewart. 7th edition, 2012, Cengage Learning Custom Publishing.
Alternative textbooks: Single Variable Calculus: Early Transcendentals 6E for UC Berkeley by James Stewart. 6th edition, Cengage Learning Custom Publishing. The difference between these editions is is mostly in the enumeration of pages and problems may vary. If you choose an edition which differ from the official one, make sure you have correct set of homework problems.

Homework Assignments

You are requested to do the assigned reading before each lecture. Note that mathematical texts are not meant to be read like novels: very often you will come across passages that must be read many times before they make sense to you.
Never fall behind in this course, either in the reading assignments or in the homework assignments.
Problem sets get rather heavy at times. This is intentional. Sometimes there is simply no substitute for repetitive drills. Problem (and reading) assignments are subject to change.
It is normal when a student is trying to solve at home some extra, more complicated, problems from the textbook which were not assigned for homework.
It is very effective when you do a part of your homework together with your fellow students in a discussion group. I encourage this.
The Mathematics department is unable to hire graders for problem sets. However, problem sets will be assigned and collected on Mondays. Answer sheets will be available here online on Wednesdays.
The homework is assigned for 7th edition of Stewart. In prentices you will find numbers of pages of exercises in the 6th edition.

Final Exam

The final exam will be on Monday, May 12, 7-10pm. This course is in exam group 4, and there is no alternate date for this exam. Here are samples of final exams: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, with some solutions. Here are the finals for 2007 and 2013 . When you will do problems from past finals, I recommend to time yourself allowing only 10 min per problem.
