CALCULATOR: A graphing calculator is required for this course.
We have traditionally used the TI-83 or 83+ and
recommend either of them, but any calculator with equivalent
capacities can be used, such as the popular TI-85 or 86.
Calculators *will not be permitted during exams*.
Formula sheets * will not be permitted during exams*.

CAUTION:
Your schedule may vary. There are many sections of Math 152.
The order in which topics are covered,
the rate at which they are covered, the precise times of
examinations, and WebAssign online homework
will vary from section to section.
For example: The table that you see below has Exam 1 scheduled
during the 12th lecture. The lecturer may decide to give the
exam during the 11th lecture, instead. The table says that section
7.7 is covered during the 11th lecture. The lecturer may decide to
start 7.7 at the end of the 10th lecture, and finish it during the
11th lecture. The table is only an approximate version
of the schedule that will actually be followed.
The final exam is different. All sections of Math 152 take the
final exam on **Thursday, May 5, 2016 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.**
If a student has an
emergency or some other compelling reason for postponing the
final exam, then that student must contact the lecturer
about a makeup exam at a later (not earlier) date.
There will also be workshop write-ups,
which must be done on paper.

The exact timing and coverage of exams during the semester will be announced by each lecturer. As a student in Math 152, your obligations will be set and announced by your individual instructors, and you will find them out only by attending your own class. Lectures are held twice each week. There is an workshop each week. We DO NOT cancel workshops that have their first meeting before the first lecture.

The final exam for this course will be given on **
Thursday, May 5, 2016 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.** The final exam
locations will be announced in April. Your final
exam location may not be the same as the room where you
have your lectures.
All sections of Math 152 take the same final examination.
Earlier in-class exams (Exam 1 and Exam 2) are written by each
lecturer.

Your lecturer will announce the grading scheme for your section
of Math 152. Your scores on
Exam 1, Exam 2, the Final Exam, workshop write-ups
and the WebAssign online homework will be used to determine
your course grade.
