This is a course intended for those students in the special calculus-intensive section (Section 1) of Ma 1a who did not have infinite series, Taylor polynomials and complex numbers during Ma 1a.
PROFESSOR OF MATHEMATICS
EXECUTIVE OFFICER FOR MATHEMATICS
Based on weekly homework.
Homework problems will be assigned weekly and posted online. There will be a total of six homework sets. The problems assigned in a given week are due the following Monday at 4:00 PM, turned in as one set. Please turn in the problems to the math department's box for Ma1d on the 2nd floor in Sloan.
For privacy reasons, please staple a cover sheet to your assignments, meaning a sheet blank except for your name. Your score will be displayed behind the cover sheet when the homework is returned to you.
In your solutions, you may use results from class, from Apostol, or the results stated as problems already assigned. Be explicit about citations when using such results; e.g., state the theorem number or the exercise number.
You can get one extension for one homework set of 2 days, no questions asked, if requested before the deadline. In all other circumstances you have to provide a letter from the Dean or from the Health Center.
Each assignment will consist of four problems. The first problem is supposed to test your basic understanding. You should do it by yourself. The other three problems will be more advanced and you are encouraged to collaborate on those. However, your write-up must be entirely your own.
