Main Lecture: TTh 11:10-12:30 PM, 2050 VLSB
Course Webpage: http://math.berkeley.edu/~wilken/1B.F08
Course Description: An introduction to differential and integral calculus of functions of one variable, with applications. This course is intended for majors in engineering and the physical sciences.
Prerequisites: 1A or equivalent.
Textbook:
Homework: assigned each week but not collected or graded.
Quizzes:
consist of randomly chosen homework problems, possibly
with different numerical constants. This semester, quizzes
will be cumulative . One of the three quiz questions
each week will be from a previous homework assignment.
Grading:
weekly quizzes: | 20% (13 quizzes given, lowest 3 scores dropped) | |
midterm 1: | 20% | |
midterm 2: | 25% | |
final exam: | 35% |
You are guaranteed at least an A, B or C if your scores are over 90%, 80% or 70%, respectively, although these grade boundaries will probably be lower after the curve.
Grade corrections: The grades for exams or quizzes will be changed only if there is a clear error on the part of the grader, such as adding up marks incorrectly. Problems must be brought to the attention of the GSI immediately after exams are returned.
Incomplete grades: Incomplete "I" grades are almost never given. The only justification is a documented serious medical problem or genuine personal/family emergency. Falling behind in this course or problems with workload in other courses are not acceptable reasons.
