Homework is assigned every week and due on Monday the next week (hand in before the class). It will be graded by the TA and returned the following week. The maximal score of the homework is scaled to 10%.

Exam conditions

The exams take place at university. Personal presence is mandatory, please keep a photo ID (e.g. student ID card) at hand. No calculators or pre-written notes allowed. You may use an alphabetically sorted list of vocables / dictionary without annotations. A makeup exam with the same conditions at a later time is availalbe if you have a university-approved excuse3 and not yet taken the original exam.

You may extend/ shorten this list, but not add annotations.

If you came to this class only 3 weeks before the mid-term (or later), please write me an e-mail stating your name, the word calculus and that you were admitted late. You will be entitled to the makeup exam, but you may not attend the regular exam. Please make sure you got some confirmation e-mail from me.

There will be additional “office” hours before the midterm: Mo 1020–1200 in C40x (same building after class) and Tue 130pm–300 in C40x.
