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 15th, and no later than 1:00 pm (Noon) on Wednesday,
September 17th.
Note that you can resection as often as you
like during this time and your previous entry will be erased.


Directions for Sectioning by computer :
Using any Harvard computer, login into your FAS account. At the shell prompt, type
"ssh section@ulam.fas.harvard.edu"

(Go to a science center public computer, if your machine should not
have an ssh client installed. More help.)

and follow the instructions there.
Your section assignment will be emailed to you by 5:00 pm Friday, September 19th.

Online Diagnostics Placement Tests:
The Department of Mathematics is piloting voluntary online placement
exams tailored specifically for Math 1a, 1b, 21a, and 21b. The exam
for each course is an individualized, timed, multiplechoice test
covering skills that students taking that course will be expected to know.
At the end of the test, you will immediately receive your results
broken down by topic area as well as a placement recommendation
based on those scores. The topical information can help you choose
a Preview/Review Session to attend. Especially because this online
system is new, all placement recommendations received from it should be
discussed with a Mathematics Department advisor.

(Online Diagnostics require a recent version of the Netscape or
Mozilla web browsers which are also available in most labs on campus).
