Math 125 Materials Website -- Spring 2021
You must purchase Webassign access
if you are taking CALCULUS for the FIRST TIME at the
University of Washington. All homework assignments and quizzes will be on
Webassign. Webassign costs $40 per quarter.
To access and purchase webassign access:
- Go to WebAssign Login Page to create a WebAssign account. You have 14-days of FREE ACCESS to WebAssign. You are automatically enrolled in the Math 125 Section you are registered for and you should be able to see your course and assignments when classes start. So there is no need to do anything at the start of the term except to login and create your account.
- Before the FREE ACCESS ends, you need to pay the $40 fee to the University Bookstore by : CLICKING
Note: If you are planning on taking at least 3 courses in the FULL CALCULUS series Math 124/5/6 and Math 324 you may wish to email the Bookstore at at firstname.lastname@example.org for an alternative purchase option that will be about $92 for all four quarters.
Exams & Grading:
- All exams will be administered online this quarter. Exams are open notes and you can use a scientific calculator. You may not use the following resources during exams: collaborating or getting help from anyone during your exam, using any online tools, websites, or search engines, using any calculators that can do calculus, using any materials other than your notes and your textbook. Please review UW's policy on Academic Misconduct.
- Table of Allowed Integral Formulas: During exams, you may use directly any of the integral formulas in the table below. Any other integrals must be computed from these, using the methods of the class.
- Calculator policy:
A TI-30X IIS calculator is required in any of the
Math 120/124/125/126 courses. Using an alternative model of a basic scientific
non-graphing calculator is permitted during remote testing, as long as it
only has similar functionality to a TI-30X IIS. Using any more advanced calculator, website,
or app that can perform Calculus operations such as differentiation or
integration during a quiz or exam is prohibited and counts as academic
- Math 124/5/6 Median GRADE POLICY:
Since Autumn 2012 the Department of Mathematics
has adopted a grade policy for this course. The median course grades for
each lecture section (or a single instructor's combined lecture sections) of
Math 124/5/6 taught during the regular academic year will fall within the
range of 2.9 +/- 0.2. This policy may not apply to the online sections of
Math 124/5/6. This policy has been
suspended during the current extraordinary circumstances quarters. Grading information will be
provided by instructors.
