Essay Corrections Symbols - Math 51 Homework
Canvas questionnaire assignments on the twice-weekly pre-class reading: a typical questionnaire consists of 3 to 5 "low-stress" questions.
Here's what this means for us: Both MWF class sessions and Tu Th discussion sections are more interactive than traditional math classes: Twice each week (exception on weeks with midterms) there will be a modest amount of reading in the course text to introduce some of the motivation behind the topic(s) to be discussed in class, along with an associated questionnaire on Canvas to be completed before class.
The responses to the questionnaire (which are not graded for correctness, just for a good-faith effort) inform how the instructor organizes the classroom time around the learning goals for that day.
Calculators are neither required nor recommended for any exams in Math 51 (we keep the numbers simple on exams).
There are a small number of homework problems for which any basic scientific calculator (even a free online one) is useful to convert some expressions into decimal approximations (and such calculations never arise on exams). Check for exam conflicts right away and contact us: Except in case of emergency, you must inform us of exam conflicts at least two weeks prior to the exam, together with a valid reason for the conflict.
