Your final assignment is now online! Also solutions to
assignment 2, and the lecturer notes for the past couple
I am hoping to get assignment 2 back to you by this
Thursday, but that is very much dependent on finding time
on Wednesday to enter the marks.
Also, it is worth noting that I am currently holding
office hours on Mondays from 11 till 12 (This was
previously incorrect on the webpage. These take place in
LSK 303C, as is usual with office hours. For those of you
who can not make my Tuesday or Thursday office hours, this
may be a good time to ask questions.
In addition, I will note that the office hours on Tuesday
the 12th of November will have to be cut short at 3:45 and
there will be NO office hour on Friday the 22nd- I am
needed elsewhere at both of those times.

Time and place
Your lecturers are twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday,
running from 8:00am till 9:30am in room 203A of the
I will hold office hours from 2-4 on Tuesday, and from 2-3
on Friday (unless course requirements force me to change
these hours) These hours will be held in LSK
303C. There are additional hours from 10-11 on Monday.
Your mark allocation is as follows:
Final exam- 50%, exam date not yet set
First midterm-18%, exam on Friday October 4th
Second midterm- 18%, exam on Friday November 1st
Weekly Webwork - 8% , due each Saturday (the web page is https://webwork.elearning.ubc.ca/webwork2/)
Tutor discretion- 6% - this broken into three 2%
assignments. The secondis currently available at the top
of this page.
You are also STRONGLY encouraged to do the
weekly homework problems. Much like rock climbing or
origami, there's only so much you can be told, the rest
you have to learn through practice. The weekly homework
problems will give you the practice you need.
The BOOK which all of these weekly homeworks are in is Calculus, Early
Transcendentals, 7th edition by James Stewart. According
to the main course webpage, the older editions of this
book will not suffice.
iClickers are a useful and
(hopefully) fun tool for us to use in class.
But until you register online, I have no way
of knowing which clicker belongs to which
person. Please register online ASAP.

If things DO NOT work out as indicated here...
don't worry. The system has only just been set
up for this course (IE Wednesday evening), and
its possible that there's a couple things I'll
have to fix.
Please send me an email, I'll see what I can
do, and then check back after a day or so to
see if things have changed.
Help each other. Talk to each
other. Share notes.
The best way to learn something is to explain
it to your fellow classmates.
You can also email me, or go get help from the
maths learning center. The MLC is in room 300
of the LSK building, and is open most of the
day. The LSK building is behind Triple O's (go
