HW Assignment for Math 124 Assignment Information This page will give a complete listing of the reading and homework assignments that you are required to do. There is also a listing of the Exam schedule for the semester. The homework will be done with WeBWorK (alternate entrance is http://webwork.sdsu.edu/html/current_courses.html). This is an electronic homework system that is graded automatically on the due date. This system has been extremely successful over many years with only a couple of glitches. The grades of students taking the course were highly correlated with the scores on the WeBWork homework assignments, so it is very important that you take this homework seriously (worth 17% of the lecture grade). If you find an error in one of the problems, then please email Joseph Mahaffy. On each problem of each assignment, you are allowed 10 tries to get the correct answer. Information on logging into WeBWorK is given by this hyperlink. Week 15: The Final is Tues, Dec 15, 8:0010:00. More details are below about the scope of the final. PDF lectures notes for Qualitative Analysis for Differential Equations (4Panel) are available. There are review problems called set ABioc4finrev are due by Tues. Dec 15 at 4 AM. These problems work as a review for the final and count as extra credit toward your HW grade. There is also a set called ABioc2LabExtra are due by Tues. Dec 15 at 4 AM, and these problems count as extra credit toward your lab score. (Ignore any parts of the questions that suggest a written lab report.) Week 1314: A review sheet (with solutions) is available to help you prepare for the lecture part of the exam.There is a practice lab (with solutions) for the Lab Exam on Friday, Dec. 4. Lecture material continues differential equations and integration. PDF lectures notes for Separation of Variables (4Panel), Integration by Substitution (4Panel), Riemann Sums and Numerical Integration (4Panel), and Definite Integrals (4Panel) are available. The problems in WeBWorK called set ABioc2sepde are due by Thur. Nov. 19 at 4 AM. There are related homework problems in the text for the sections on Separation of Variables.

Graded IClicker questions on Tuesday are from separable differential equations and integraton by substitution. Thursday the IClicker questions are from the integration by substitution, midpoint and trapezoid rules, and possibly definite integrals.

There are practice exercises in WeBWorK (set ABiocDer_rev), which review differentiation and allow some extracredit toward earlier quiz scores. These will be open through November. Lab Help: In lab we showed what is expected for graphs (do and don'ts). We have a document on the stepbystep methods to produce a good graph in Excel 2010. Also, there is additional documentation on what is expected through the link to the Good Graph Document. For those interested in purchasing Maple, you can access the Maple adoption sheet through this hyperlink. Tutoring There is a Math Learning Center in Love Library room 410, which has free tutoring. This is a good place for help on HW problems, but not the Computer Lab questions. The Department of Math has additional information, which can be found at the Math Office. They also have a list of Private Tutors . Grading and Exam Information This section will give you information about exams throughout the semester. The grading for this course is based on 70% from the lecture material and 30% from the lab. The lecture grade is 7% from lecture participation (IClicker), 9% from the WeBWorK homework assignments, and 84% from the HW Quizzes, three Exams, and a Final. The lab grade is from approximately 14 computer labs and the 3 Lab Quizzes, which each count twice a normal lab. (You will be able to drop one lab score.) The labs are due by Thursday at 9 PM, after which no credit is given. Your Final for the semester occurs Tues, Dec 15, 8:0010:00. Final questions will be similar to ones in the previous Exams, Quizzes, WeBWorK assignments (including the Extra one), and the review sheets for all the exams. Material covers the entire semester with heavier emphasis on the Calculus portions (Exam 2 and Exam 3). Note that you will only be able to use a Scientific Calculator. Due to cheating in the past, we are restricting the choice to the TI30X series (TI30Xa, TI30XS, or TIX IIS). In addition, you can have three 3x5 notecards (both sides). Cell phones must be turned off and not be visible! The Solutions to Exams are available through the links below:
Exam Dates
Anyone receiving a score less than 50% on the Final may not obtain a grade higher than a C. Course Drop Deadlines: The University has a very strict policy on the drop deadline. You must drop this course by Sep. 2. Week 1: Add Codes will be distributed after class or in the Lab based on the space available and number of students crashing the course. You should start the WebWork assignments immediately and let me know if I made any mistakes entering your name or RedID number for the login and password. See the WeBWorK login instructions for details. We will give very limited help on problems on the Algebra SelfTest, and we will not give any assistance during the semester for questions asked within 24 hours of the problems being due. You need to familiarize yourself with this website so that you will know where to get the appropriate information for doing well in this course. There is a page that should help you navigate this website if you are not comfortable with the web. Students are entitled to a free account on rohan for receiving email and accessing many of the University computer facilities. (I highly recommend that you obtain this account as rohan has certain abilities that you may want for this course and future courses, which are unavailable by private providers.) More information on this is provided at the SDSU computer facilities website. Preparation: The experience of the Biology and Mathematics Departments with this course in the past has shown that many of you, who are taking this course, are not properly prepared. Many of you have had a large time gap between your last math course and this one or you simply had poor preparation (often severe disinterest) in basic algebra. In the past Math 124 had over 50% of the students who enrolled either dropped the course or failed it (usually from inadequate preparation or unwillingness to work). To help you understand the expectations of students entering this course, there is a Algebra Review using WeBWorK. It is your responsibility to work through this Algebra worksheet and try to honestly access your abilities. (When you discuss problems later in the course, we are likely to ask you how you did on this examination.) If you score over 70%, then you are probably prepared for this course. If you score 5070% on this algebra review, then you may be able to succeed with very hard work. If you score below 50%, then you are not prepared for this course and should enroll in Math 141 (Precalculus) or a Community College course to refresh your Algebra skills. This Algebra Review will count toward your homework grade, so it is not an optional assignment. This problem set in WebWork is given by Set ABiocAlg and consists of 53 problems that will be due by Sun. Sep 6at 4 AM. (There is also a problem for changing your password and adding email to this account.) Information on logging into WeBWorK is given by this hyperlink. At the end of your first Computer Lab you will take a 20 question Algebra Quiz to test you on your preparation for this course (similar to the Algebra Questions in WeBWorK). Reading assignment: Read all sections in the introduction to be familiar with the course policies and what is expected of you. (You may want to read the CSU and SDSU College of Sciences policy statement also.) PDF lectures notes for the Introduction (4Panel) and Linear Models (4Panel) are available. (More reading material can be found in the text under Introduction and Linear or from the lecture notes from Math 121.) The problems in WeBWorK called set ABioclinear. These problems are due by Sun.
