* Sectioning: After the introductory meetings, calculus is taught entirely in sections. To enroll in MathXa, Math 1a, Math 1b, Math 21a and Math 21b you must section by computer during the period starting Monday, September 17th, and no later than 1:00 pm on Wednesday, September 19th. Note that you can re-section as often as you like during this time and your previous entry will be erased.
* Directions for Sectioning by computer:
From a Windows computer, open the SecureCRT application [Download from FAS]. Use the "Quickconnect" menu to open a connection with protocol
