The links in the right menu point to important information about the operation of the course. Students are expected to be familiar with the policies and procedures described. Additional information will be posted here during the term. Students should check back periodically. Math 135 has many components, including the text, lectures, recitations, homework assignments, ## The TextbookThe textbook is ## CalculatorsMany students will find a calculator useful for homework and ## The SyllabusHere is a generic syllabus for the course. Here is a lecture-by-lecture description of the course. Each lecturer will prepare a detailed syllabus for their lecture section. The lecturer's syllabus is the official one for that class. Term grades are assigned by the lecturer. Here are the suggested homework problems for each section of the text covered in the course. Individual lecturers may modify this list. Students are expected to work on homework problems before coming to recitations. Recitations give students an opportunity to ask questions and to see sample problems worked in detail. Students will not benefit fully from recitation classes unless they attempt the assigned problems in advance. Normally, at the end of each recitation class there will be a short quiz consisting of one problem similar to those discussed that day. Quiz scores are a signficant component of the term grade. ## WebAssign
At the end of the semester, the system provides the instructor with a score for each student. This score is based on the number of problems the student eventually got right, not on the number of attempts made.
