**Calculus Tutoring Lab:
** A tutoring lab for Calculus students will be open 10 to 12 hours daily Monday
through Friday in APM B402A. There will usually be at least 2 tutors and/or TAs available
to help with homework, calculators, and coursework. Take a look at the
schedule
to see when it is open or when your favorite tutor or TA is there.
**We strongly recommend that you make use of the
Calculus Tutoring Lab.**

**Calculators:** A graphing calculator (preferably a TI-83) is recommended.
Many exercises in the textbook assume the use of a graphing calculator. Help with using TI
graphing calculators will be available in the
Calculus Tutoring Lab.
* Note:* You may use any calculator you wish during exams; however, you will
be expected to show all work leading to a solution. No credit will be given to unsupported answers
gotten directly from your calculator.

**Homework:** Homework will be assigned on the course
homework page and should be completed by the discussion section on the
indicated due date. Homework will not be collected; your homework will be evaluated
by your performance on periodic quizzes. You should make every effort to complete the
homework assignments and seek help with problems you have not been able to solve. You
can get help with the homework assignments in the
Calculus Tutoring Lab (APM B402A).
A Student Solutions Manual (available in the Bookstore) has complete solutions for
all of the odd-numbered problems in the text.

**Reading:** Reading the sections of the textbook corresponding to the assigned
homework exercises is considered part of the homework assignment; you are responsible for material
in the assigned reading *whether or not it is discussed in the lecture.*

**Quizzes:** There will be four (4) quizzes given during Friday lectures.
See the course calendar for the dates of the quizzes. Each quiz
will consist of two problems taken directly from the assigned homework; *however, the data
(numbers) may be changed on some problems*. You will be allowed
twenty (20) minutes to complete each quiz. Your cumulative quiz grade will be based on the
best three (3) of the four (4) quizzes. No notes (or books) will be allowed during the
quizzes. **There will be no makeup quizzes.**

**Midterm Exams:** There will be two (2) midterm exams given
on **Week 4** and **Week 8**s.
(See also the course calendar). You
may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten sheet of notes with you to each midterm exam.
**There will be no makeup exams.**

**Final Exam:** The final examination will be held at the following date and time.

**3:00pm - 6:00pm Monday, March 15**(See the course calendar.)- Please note:
- It is your responsibility to ensure that you do not have a schedule conflict involving the final examination.
- You should not enroll in this class if you cannot sit for the final examination at its scheduled time.

- Please note:
- You may bring one 8.5 by 11 inch handwritten sheet of notes with you to the final examination.

**Regrades:** Quizzes and midterm exams will be returned in the discussion sections. If you wish to
have your quiz or exam regraded, you must observe the following rules:

- Return your quiz or exam immediately to your TA. Regrade requests will not be considered once the quiz or exam leaves the room.
- If you disagree with the TA's answer to your regrade request, you may ask for the instructor to review it. In order to do this, you must:
- Return your quiz or exam immediately to your TA and ask that they forward it to the instructor.
- Instructor review requests will not be considered once the quiz or exam leaves the room.

- If you do not retrieve your quiz or exam during discussion section, you must arrange to pick it up from your TA within one week after it was returned in order for any regrade request to be considered.

**Grading:** Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of
the term and will be based on the following scale:

A+ |
A |
A- |
B+ |
B |
B- |
C+ |
C |
C- |
D |

97 |
93 |
90 |
87 |
83 |
80 |
77 |
73 |
70 |

We may adjust the scale to be more lenient, but we guarantee that the grade corresponding to a given percentage will not be lower than specified by the above scale. Your cumulative average will be the best of the following two weighted averages:

- 15% Quizzes, 20% Midterm Exam I, 20% Midterm Exam II, 45% Final Exam
- 15% Quizzes, 20% Best Midterm, 65% Final Exam

**Academic Dishonesty:** Academic dishonesty is considered a serious offense at
UCSD. Students caught cheating will face an administrative sanction which may include suspension or
expulsion from the university. It is in your best interest to maintain your integrity.
