Discussion section meetings begin the first Tuesday of the quarter, so please choose your section assignment immediately. Lectures begin on the first Monday of the quarter.

Important Enrollment Information: In order to receive credit for written work, all students in Math 51 must register for a discussion section; please follow the steps below. (No discussion registration is necessary for Math 51A (ACE) students; see below for ACE discussion section information.)

  1. On Axess, select your course lecture: number 01, 02, or 03. (All of the lectures use an "active learning" structure, so just choose the lecture that best fits your schedule, subject to availability.)

  2. Before you can finalize your Axess registration, you must also select a discussion section from the choices below. If there is no more room, you must choose another section. You cannot receive credit for written work unless you register for a discussion section.
