Math 180: Calculus I
University of Illinois at Chicago
NOTE: MOST INFORMATION ABOUT MATH 180 IS FOUND ON THE
→ MATH 180 COURSE PAGE
In particular, homework assignments, the syllabus, practice exams, and textbook information are found there. Check the course page regularly.
The information on this page applies ONLY to my section of math 180, which is:
MWF 12 Noon
Lecture Center C4
Homework collected every Tuesday
Homework is assigned for every lecture (→ complete homework table
The homework problems from Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each week
are due the following Tuesday, and will be collected in the
discussion meeting with your TA. Graded homework will also be
returned in discussion.
Late homework is not accepted.
Homework is not accepted by email.
Computing your homework grade
At the end of the semester we will compute a homework (and quiz) average for each student as follows:
- The scores for each week's homework and each quiz are assembled in a list.
- Each score is converted to a percentage (dividing by the number of available points on that assignment).
- The two lowest percentages are dropped from the list.
- The average of the remaining percentages accounts for 20% of your course grade.
No Online Homework
We will not have online homework in this section.
Thus you do NOT need to buy a MyMathLab access kit, and you do NOT need a MyMathLab account or access code. The textbook is the only required item.
We will not use Blackboard at all. (Blackboard is a system that some courses use to post information and announcements, assignments, etc.).
Announcements specific to this section of math 180 will be posted on this web page. Homework and other course-wide math 180 information is available from the Main Math 180 Home Page
In-class quizzes may be given at any time (in MWF lecture or in TR discussion). Sometimes quizzes will be announced in advance, but not always. Typically these will last between 10 and 15 minutes. No make-up quizzes will be given.
For grading purposes a single quiz is equivalent to one homework assignment (i.e. one week's homework).
