*"Making sense of your math placement score" Discussion session on Friday, August 25, 2017 from 3PM-3:35PM in Science Center Hall B.
*Should I take Math 18,19,21,23,25,55: Meeting and discussion on Friday, August 25th from 3:40 pm - 5 pm in Science Center Hall B.
* Sectioning: After the introductory meetings (see the schedule below), calculus is taught entirely in sections. To enroll in Math Ma, Math 1a, Math 1b, Math 21a, Math 21b, you must section by computer during the period starting Monday, August 28th and no later than 7:00 pm on Wednesday, August 30st. Note that you can re-section as often as you like during this time and your previous entry will be erased. Your section assignment for Math Ma,1a,1b,21a,21b will be emailed to you the evening of Friday, September 1st.
* Directions for sectioning by computer:
From a Windows computer, open the SecureCRT application [Download from FAS], or "Putty". For SecureCRT, use the "Quickconnect" menu to open a connection with protocol
ssh2, hostname: ulam.fas.harvard.edu and username: section .
From a Macintosh with OS X start the "Terminal" application located under Applications/Utilities. At the shell prompt, type
"ssh section@ulam.fas.harvard.edu" and type return.
Using any Linux or Unix computer, login into your FAS account. At the shell prompt, type
"ssh section@ulam.fas.harvard.edu" and type return.
