There will be a midterm and a final, as well as four homework problem sets. REQUIRED TEXT/CLICKERS : There is no single text for this course. However, readings will be required on a regular basis throughout the quarter and will be available on the course website. The material in the readings may appear on exams, so it’s essential to keep up with the reading. Please note that you are required to have a clicker for this course. Clickers are available by loan from the Office of Instructional Development ( http://lendme.oid.ucla.edu/) . You are required to register your iClicker or iClicker+ device on the course web site, by following the steps below. 1. Log into CCLE at https://ccle.ucla.edu/ and go to AOS 1. 2. Locate the i>clicker block on the AOS 1 class site 3. Click on the “Remote Registration” link 4. Enter the i>clicker ID located on the back of the clicker.

GRADING: Clickers/Participation 10%, Homework 20%, Midterm 30%, Final 40%. Exams are based on lecture material and homework assignments. The four homework assignments are designed to highlight essential concepts. The Clicker/Participation grade will be based purely on your participation in the clicker portion of the course. For every clicker question you answer (correctly or incorrectly), you will receive one point. The total points possible will be the total number of clicker questions that end up appearing. Typically, there will be 1-3 clicker questions per class session.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
